Join us for another exciting season of Musica de Camara at El Museo del Barrio! Harpsichord virtuoso Kenneth Hamrick with the American Virtuosi Ensemble will perform Roberto Sierra’s Concierto Nocturnal and Manuel de Falla’s Concerto for Harpsichord, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Violin and Cello which was the inspiration for Sierra’s work. The performance will be presented along with a video installation of artwork, inspired by the music, specially created for this event by award winning artist Nitza Tufiño.

Founded by soprano Eva de La O, Musica de Camara concerts have presented Puerto Rican, and Hispanic classical musicians; instrumentalists, singers and composers in concert since its inception. The several hundred classical music concerts have also included non-Hispanic artists in events at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, Weill Hall, Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Kaufman Cultural Center, the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, the Hostos Center for the Arts, Pregones Theater and the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Musica de Camara concerts and lectures also travel to learning institutions, community centers, churches and museums bringing classical music to those who have little or no access to traditional concert venues.
