Rehearsals have begun for the upcoming concerts with the Orquesta Sinfónica Jose Artigas, based in Montevideo, Uruguay. The concert, which is sponsored by the Panamanian Embassy in Uruguay, will include Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, my own "Lamento y Punto" and Mozart's first flute concerto with my friend MANUEL RUIZ as soloist. Manuel was a long-standing member of the Orquesta Istmeña, and I am very proud of working with him for this wonderful concert.
The event will take place at the Nelly Goitiño Theatre, on November 11. A second performance will take place outside Montevideo on the 12th. We thank both the Panamanian Embassy in Montevideo and Ariel Britos and the José Artigas Orchestra for their kindness and hospitality.
