Fernando Meza of the University of Minnesota, Bismarck Fernández, currently with the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional and Ricardo Alvarado, another international percussionist, will be the headliners Friday and Sunday for the fifth concert of the season by the orchestra.
Both the event Friday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. will be in the Teatro Nacional. The director will be Lior Shambadal.
The three soloists will interpret “The Glory and the Grandure: A Concert for Percussion and Orchestra” by the U.S. composer Richard Peck. The music calls for at least a dozen different percussion instruments.
Also on the program is a work by Dmitri Shostakovich.
Alvarado studied at the Instituto Nacional de la Música under Fernández and Meza.
