This holiday season, Alondra de la Parra returns to Mexico for a series of festive concerts throughout the country. She conducts the Orquesta Filarmónica de las Américas, with the Coro Internacional de las Artes and The Australian Voices, in a multi-faceted programme featuring much-loved classics and holiday favorites from across the globe. Pianist Paul Lewis joins for all dates for his debut appearances in Mexico, as soloist on Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
Alondra de la Parra continues her tenure as the Music Director of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra with vibrant concerts in celebration of the QSO’s 70th Anniversary Season. On November 17 & 18, violinist Barnabás Kelemen joins Ms. de la Parra and the QSO as soloist on Brahms’ thrilling Violin Concerto, on performances that also include Dutilleux’ Métaboles and Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé Suites 1 & 2, with The Australian Voices.
Continuing on the theme of featuring great French masterworks, Ms. de la Parra leads a fantastic roster of vocalists in a concert performance of Bizet’s Carmen on November 25. Vesselina Kasarova makes her Australian debut in the title role, with Thiago Arancam as her desperate lover Don José. This event is featured as a spectacular recognition of the Orchestra’s anniversary.
Part of the San Francisco Symphony’s 10th annual Día de los Muertos (‘Day of the Dead’) Celebration, Alondra de la Parra conducts two performances with the SFS on November 4. One concert includes a family-friendly programme with the Symphony at 2pm, and the other, hosted at 8pm, features an intimate selection of music with a backing band of instrumentalists. Both concerts feature the talents of acclaimed vocalist Eugenia León.
