The sounds of South America will come to Mid Wales during an upcoming concert in Llanwrtyd Wells.
The Llanwrtyd & District Heritage and Arts Centre is delighted to host a concert by Duo Correa-Andrews, who will be performing an evening of classical flute, voice and guitar music from Colombia - the "land of a thousand rhythms.”
Flautist and singer Emily Andrews and classical guitarist Francisco Correa will perform wonderful but little-known music by composers from Francisco's native Colombia, including several works written especially for the duo.
A virtuoso on the guitar Francisco and flautist Emily are experienced recitalists and they take care to present their exciting and varied programme in an informal but informative way, explaining the stories behind each piece.
The husband and wife duo have had many sell-out concerts and excellent reviews:
"Emily switches between voice and flute effortlessly, sometimes presenting haunting instrumental melodies, sometimes singing folk songs in her rich mezzo. Francisco's accompaniment to these pieces, as well as his solo playing is virtuosic but sensitive, making undeniably fiendishly difficult guitar writing sound easy and effortles,s"
In addition to their own concert circuit, Emily and Francisco are in demand as individual artists. Emily has recently worked with Welsh National Opera, BBC NOW, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to name just a few. Francisco performs regularly as a soloist at Kings Place, on BBC Radio 3’s "In Tune" programme, and frequently as a concerto soloist on both sides of the Atlantic.
The concert, supported by the Night Out scheme, will takes place on Saturday, June 24. The music begins at 7.30pm, with doors opening at 7pm.
Tickets are £8 and are available by contacting the Heritage Centre.
