BRADFORD, Pa. - Trio Los Claveles, a Latin guitar and percussion ensemble from Rochester, N.Y., will present a free lunchtime concert next week at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
The concert, which is part of the Spectrum arts series, will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in the KOA Speer Electronics Lobby of Blaisdell Hall.
Trio Los Claveles formed in 2003 to honor the musical traditions of their native Puerto Rico. Since then, they have appeared at numerous venues, festivals and fairs, demonstrating the distinctive melodies and lush harmonies of the Romantic bolero, the group's specialty and a staple dance of Latin America.
"The Trio's concert is a unique opportunity," said Dr. John Levey, assistant professor of music. "There aren't many live performances of Latin music in our region, and I think listeners will find the songs really engaging. Members of the ensemble plan to speak about the repertoire, too, so it will be great entertainment with a bit of education mixed in."
