The Music Institute of Chicago is pleased to announce a free Zoom webinar presented by MIC cello faculty member, Dr. Horacio Contreras.  Latin American Cello Repertoire: Teaching and Performing Music by Latin American Composers will explore the Sphinx Catalog of Latin American Cello Works, a free resource of more than 2,200 entries which provides an extensive window into the music of Latin American composers and is co-authored by Dr. Contreras. He will introduce users to the catalog and provide ideas on selected works that can be used for performance and teaching. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A session.

 

The catalog is maintained through the sponsorship of the Sphinx Organization and CelloBello, a nonprofit organization with a mission to nurture and strengthen the individual cellist and a global cello community.

 

The webinar is free and welcomes private cello teachers, university professors, K-12 music teachers, as well as other educators and orchestra directors.
