Welcome one of the true legends of classical guitar to Cincinnati: Pepe Romero. The son of Celedonio Romero and part of “the royal family of the guitar,” Pepe will perform a composition his father dedicated to him, the Concierto de Málaga. Inspired by exotic and fiery Spanish sounds that incorporate flamenco elements, the CCO will feature internationally acclaimed flamenco dancer Arleen Hurtado. Providing a rhythmic center to the orchestral fabric will be palmero Gabriel Osuna, showcasing this unique style of handclapping. From glimmering strings to flamenco guitar, enjoy an evening of music that is brilliant, joyful and quintessentially Spanish.
