The director of the Orquesta Filarmónica Metropolitana de Anzoátegui (OFMA) will lead the Orquesta Sinfónica Carlos Cruz-Diez (OSCCD), based in Madrid, which is integrated by Venezuelan migrant musicians living in Europe.
This is the OSCCD's first international invitation to a Venezuelan director. The purpose of the presentation is to premiere its new symphonic core in several Spanish cities.
The Orquesta Filarmónica Metropolitana Anzoátegui exalted the importance of this invitation as part of the promotion and international projection of the talents from the state of Anzoátegui.
"It is an honor that our musicians cross borders and are generators of musical nuances and sublime melodies of Ibero-American syncretism," Pajares also told the Venezuelan outlet La Patilla.
The first concert of the choral orchestra will be on Oct. 12 at the Apolo Theater in Barcelona, as part of the Festival of Hispanidad and within the framework of the annual Spanish National Holiday.
"With the first concert of the new Cruz-Diez Orchestra of Barcelona, conducted by maestro Oswaldo Pajares we continue to grow," the OSCCD posted on its official Instagram, inviting everyone to participate in the event.
Among the setlist to be conducted by Pajares are the medley "Aires de Venezuela" and the works of Mexican Arturo Márquez "Danzón number 2," and "Conga del Fuego," among others.
