Program Description

Event Details

Santiago Baena Flórez and Thomas Wadsworth welcome you all to a “Musicale Afternoon,” a piano and clarinet duet which will guide the audience through an engaging and fun program. 

  When putting this music together, the diversity of the pieces and having fun was most important to us. 

 Today you will hear many genres of music that will appeal to those with differing preferences. A blend of Mozart, Bach, Colombian music, and some passionate Latin American music. 

  It is our pleasure to be here with you today, enjoy the performance and we will be sharing more information about the pieces as we go along.
