Events : LATIN PASSION Concert Helping to Fight Hunger (April 8-9, 2016)
 Posted by admin on 2016/4/4 2:10:00 (159 reads)

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to invite you to LATIN PASSION, as part of the Multicultural Awareness Council Open Doors Series, April 8-9, 2016 at Music Hall.

Conductor Juanjo Mena returns by popular demand to conduct Falla´s La vida breve, featuring massive orchestral forces, flamenco dancing and a colorful score in what is sure to be one of the season´s can´t-miss highlights.

Also on the program: Spanish guitarist Pablo Villegas, who was recently praised for his ´thoughtful phrasing and gorgeous coloring´ (Pittsburg Post-Gazette), performs Rodrigo´s exceptionally lovely Fantasía para un Gentilhombre.  For more info: click here

Help the CSO Fight Hunger!

The Friday, April 8 concert is part of Orchestras Feeding America, a national initiative to help fight hunger in the United States. 

One in six neighbors in our Tri-State area is at risk of hunger. In response to this need, the CSO is holding a food drive for Freestore Foodbank on April 8 in conjunction with the concert Latin Passion at Music Hall.

Starting April 4, with a canned food donation, you can purchase a concert ticket to Latin Passion on April 8 for only $10.

Already have a ticket for April 8th? Call the box office at 513.381.3300 to see how you can still participate.

Orchestras Feeding America (OFA), has seen over 450 orchestras from across the country collect and donate nearly 475,000 pounds of food. The efforts of these orchestras have helped spread the word about how and why orchestras are so necessary to their communities, beyond providing amazing music.

What is it like to be a refugee?

And how can we better serve those displaced by war and famine?

To find out, join the

Head of the International Rescue Team of the United Nations, Dr. Ana  Julieta Calvo,

on Thursday, June 18 at 7:00 pm

at Bellarmine Chapel on the campus of Xavier University.

 Dr. Calvo works in the United Nations High Commission for Refugees and is currently working in Za'atari, where she is in charge of 3 hospitals and  11 clinics.  As a medical doctor, Calvo has spent time in many countries  including Colombia, Mozambique, Kosovo, Uganda, and Jordan.  Although most of her work has taken place in refugee camps, she has also worked with  urban refugee settlements.


"All of my activities, including shelter, protection, water-sanitation  and health services, are vital to protecting and decreasing the suffering  of refugees from war," she says. 

At Za'atari, Dr. Calvo and her team deliver approximately 70 babies a week, provide 60,000 health  consultations every month, vaccinate thousands of children, run hygiene  campaigns, and treat people with chronic illnesses.
