About the Guest Artists

Cuarteto Flamenco del Sur combines the talents of the Romanian virtuoso guitarist Silviu Ciulei’s Maharajah Flamenco Trio and the internationally-renowned percussionist and ethnomusicologist Michael Bakan. Together, they form one of the most exciting and dynamic flamenco nuevo, or “new flamenco,” groups on the world music scene today. Cuarteto’s passionate music blends the rich traditions of Spanish flamenco with diverse styles of jazz, classical, and popular music, mixing it all up with exotic instruments and scintillating rhythms from around the world—Cuba, Peru, and West Africa; Aboriginal Australia, the Middle East, and Indonesia. Their repertoire spans the gamut from bulerias to Bach, rumba to rock, and didjeridoo to duende. The result is a band that pushes to the cutting edge of world music innovation while at the same maintaining a firm foothold in one of the world’s great music traditions: flamenco!

 

“Music plays a major role in the full development of a child. Not only does it enrich lives, it also serves as a pathway for students to express themselves and explore new ways to communicate with others. For 20 years, kudos to the JCC for molding the lives of young artists, and I look forward to the next 20 years.”

Tim Cost, President, Jacksonville University

“The JCC is more than just a chorus; it is truly a life-changing experience. The Chorus has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.”

Emma, 17, Touring and Concert Choirs

“I was in the Jacksonville Children's Chorus in 1999-2002. It helped me to build long lasting friendships and a greater love for music. To this day I still remember the fun times and great concerts we did in the JCC. I think this organization is great for children of all ages, it helps build confidence and friendships.”

Bethany, Former Member

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University

“Through music and your leadership, these children learn to perform in different languages while experiencing the diversity of an array of world cultures. The understanding they gain will serve them well as they enter adulthood.”

R. Randall Onstead, former President/CEO of Winn-Dixie
