Santiago Chile / by Beth Beauchamp

Flying down to Santiago, Chile for the premieres of two new pieces – Box Inside the Box and Hemispheres --written especially for Solistico de Santiago, a chamber group led by the wonderful violinist Macarena Ferrer and featuring many of the country’s finest classical performers. The concert will be held in the city’s premiere classical venue – El Teatro Municipal. Hemispheres will be the concert encore and feature my great friend and special guest, Dr. Keith Winking on trumpet. During the visit I will work with the legendary Conchali Youth Big Band, who are scheduled to perform some of my charts on an upcoming concert. I am also booked for a lecture at ProJazz Institute on the subject of pops orchestra arranging.
