Apres Midi: February 12, 2020 - Mariusz Smolij; Jaden Romero, Mary Neiheizel, & Cynthia Watson

Feb 12, 2020

  In today's first interview with Mariusz Smolij, we discuss ASO's upcoming show! The Acadiana Symphony Orchestra will feature Cuban pianist Leonel Morales for a beautiful Valentine's Day concert, Amor Prohibido.

Love, passion and emotions find many different ways to manifest themselves in arts. In music, those feelings may use extremely opposite forms of expression. Some composers, for example use slow romantic melodies and soft dynamics while others explore fast, fiery rhythms and vivid dynamic contrasts. The repertoire of this program will feature music of those three geographical regions; Cuba, Spain and Eastern Europe, allowing the pianists to share the passion of those three different cultures in the most personal way.

The event is scheduled Saturday at Acadiana Center for the Arts. The 6 p.m. show is sold out, but tickets are still available for the 8:30 p.m. performance. Please visit this link for more information!
