Seattle Modern Orchestra


Seattle Modern Orchestra presents an evening of dynamic chamber music from across the Americas. Curated by Cristina Valdés, longtime SMO pianist and founder of the Seattle Latin American Music Festival, this program features music by composers with roots in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Argentina. Works by Angélica Negrón and Luis Fernando Amaya utilize electroacoustic soundscapes, José-Luis Hurtado’s Retour invites SMO musicians to explore individualized timbral worlds, and the music of Silvina Milstein and Carlos Sanchez-Guiterrez offers the thrill of intricate chamber music dialogue.
