Music for Peace Ni Una Mas

May 14, 2010 — Drums and music notes on colorful background

A free concert by Intercultural Journeys, The Dali Quartet and flutist Nicholas Real will be a special musical contribution to our Ni Una Mas exhibition on Tuesday, May 25th at 7 PM in the Pearlstein Gallery (3401 Filbert St). The concert will feature six brilliant, classically trained musicians performing compositions including Metro Chabacano for string quartet by composer Javier Alvarez.  

Led by Philadelphia Orchestra cellist Udi Bar-David, Intercultural Journeys is an organization devoted to breaking barriers between cultures and peoples in conflict through artistic performance.  The Dalí Quartet is an all-Latino chamber ensemble with a unique mix of traditional string quartet repertoire and Latin American chamber music. Nicolas Real is a Venezuelan flutist, conductor, and composer who is currently the principal flutist at the Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra. All will share the stage for a unique and special evening of musical performance.

This Intercultural Journey’s performance initiative has this acclaimed musical group working closely with several community-based Latino organizations including Taller Puertorriqueño, a North Philadelphia community organization that provides cultural opportunities for children and young people.  In addition to Taller Puretorriqueño, Artistas y Músicos Latino Americanos (AMLA), an organization that promotes the development, dissemination and understanding of Latin music and culture in the Philadelphia area will support the performance.  Musicians from the concert will work with students from these community centers in the days leading up to the concert to engage Latino youngsters with the arts and music of Spanish speaking cultures throughout the world.
