17 Aug Miriam Ramos and Ulises Hernandez in concert
FUNDarte in collaboration with Miami Dade County Auditorium present “Danzas para Piano and La Canción Cubana” by Ulises Hernandez (1st act) and Miriam Ramos (2nd Act): Two concerts each evening! On Saturday, January 18th at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 19th, at 6:00 p.m. at On.Stage Black.Box Theater at Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 Flagler St. Miami)
Two old friends, singer and recent Latin Grammy Nominee Miriam Ramos and pianist Ulises Hernandez—both virtuosos in their own right—will share an evening of unforgettable Cuban classics ranging from Hernandez’s classical Latin works to Ramos’ interpretations of cherished Cuban popular ballads, accompanied by awarded pianist Rolando Luna. Bound by their long-standing mutual respect, over the course of two extraordinary evenings, these artists will navigate the classical masterpieces of Cervantes and Lecuona along with a soulful variety of popular Cuban musical genres such as Filin and Bolero. These exciting side-by-side concerts offer a sumptuous repertoire of classical favorites together with contemporary exploration, passionate expression, and musical innovation. Ulises Hernandez represents a remarkable tradition of Cuban classical piano that is uniquely Latin and unrivaled in its mastery; Miriam Ramos will be performing songs from her latest cd “La Canción Cubana” featuring a repertory of traditional songs from the 19th Century to contemporary compositions by Cuban songwriters.
