The artistic proposal is part of the 'Chamber Music from Home' cycle and is one of the four concerts, in this format, that will take place this 2020.
'A season like no other' is the name with which the Universidad de La Serena Symphony Orchestra baptized its annual program, referring to its ambitious artistic-musical billboard along with large repertoires and a considerable list of invited conductors and soloists that this 2020 they would land in the Star Region. However, it was enough that in Chile the first figures of infections by Covid-19 were known to change the axis of the season and reach, in the same way, those who enjoy the work of the professional cast.
In response to this, the 2020 season has kicked off by opening the curtain with the first four Chamber Music concerts from home; each one with a different, special theme and directed at the family, providing a space for knowledge, encounter and joy through music and culture. “Our objective as an orchestra is to continue accompanying our community, and also the public that is in other places; through an artistic, striking and particular proposal ”, expressed the OSULS concertmaster, Leonardo Godoy Sepúlveda.
This artistic proposal opens this month with the I Chamber Music Concert called 'A journey through the history of Jazz'; which will be broadcast on Facebook Live (@Orquesta Sinfónica Universidad de La Serena) on Friday, June 26 at 20:00 p.m. The program will be in charge of the brass and percussion corps of the symphonic ensemble: Pablo Pallero (marimba), Cristian Monreal (trumpets), Gerson Pierotti (French horn) and as guest musicians, this time there will be the outstanding national musician Sebastián Jordán (trumpet) ), Daniel Carmona (trombone) and Herman Morales (tuba, PDI Symphony Orchestra) who will bring to life a series of seven unmissable pieces; among which stand out 'Ragtime - Suite Latinoamericana' (Enrique Crespo), 'Jovial Jasper' for marimba sola (Hamilton Green), 'St. Louis Blues' and 'Moonlight Serenade' (Bill Holcombe arrangements), among others.
In this way, the professional cast of the Coquimbo Region reconnects with its public, reaching new latitudes and extending its work and commitment to culture. Via telephone Leonardo Godoy affirmed that “for us as an orchestra it is very important to maintain the link and share culture and art with our audience (…); we consider that we cannot be alien or absent in this regard; That is why we want to share with our community what we know how to do and accompany them; always with the hope of being able to see us again in face-to-face activities, in the near future when sanitary conditions allow it, ”said the interpreter.
The Chamber Music from home cycle includes a total of four concerts, this Friday being the opening to the 2020 Season; and then continue with the II Concert: 'La Esencia Musical de Bach' (July 24); III Concert: 'A streaming movie' (August 8) and the IV Concert: 'Ensemble of Classical Winds' (September 4). All will be broadcast from the cast's Facebook Live and later, reproduced on their YouTube platforms (Sinfónica La Serena) and Instagram (@sinfonicalaserena). Also, from his Twitter account (@sinfonicaLS)
The 2020 season has been carried out thanks to funding from the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage since 2016, through the Glosa de Presupuesto Nacional by being part of the Network of Professional Regional Orchestras; added to the financing granted by the University of La Serena.
