Join us on a journey as we explore the exciting sounds of music from South America and Spain. The Fort Wayne Ballet will bring Ginastera’s Four Dances to life setting the stage for JP Jofre to perform on the bandoneon, the accordion-like instrument from South America. Concertmaster Violetta Todorova will accompany Jofre in his own concerto and then Jofre will take the stage alone showcasing Piazzolla’s Aconcagua. The Ballet will conclude the concert dancing to Spanish composer Manuel De Falla in the Three-Cornered Hat
