12th Chicago Latino Music Festival Schedule (2017)

October 12 – November 19, 2017

The Chicago Latino Music Festival produces performances and promotes awareness of music from Latin America and Spain, ranging from the Colonial period to the 21st century. The Latino Music Festival functions as a bridge, bringing Hispanic and Latin American classical music to audiences in Chicago. Our programming covers as wide a time period as Spanish XIII century mondy, to the music written today by the new generation of Latino composers. In addition to a roster of internationally acclaimed artists participating annually in the Festival and its programs, the Latino Music Festival places a strong emphasis on local talent, featuring Chicago’s most prestigious orchestras, ensembles and soloists, as well as a number of talented young professionals. The CLMF commissions new pieces from Latino composers and features world, US and/or Chicago premieres of works both new and historical. The Festival also has a residency program for chamber ensembles and soloists which focuses on the dissemination of the Ibero-American repertoire.
