CMP Composer’s Work Presented in Gala Concert

CMP composer Jorge Oviedo’s violin concerto was performed on March 30 by Ecuadorean violinist Jorge Saade and the Symphony Orchestra of Northern Virginia at the George Washington Masonic Memorial Theatre in Alexandria, Virginia, under the baton of Jeffrey Sean Dokken. Entitled, “A Celebration of North and South,” the program also included a performance by Ecuadorean pianist Juan Carlos Escudero, who played Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
Oviedo, who is one of the leading composers in his country, frequently conducts Quito's Metropolitan Symphonic Band.
Cayambis Music Press expects to release the first edition of this work within the next two months.
