24 October: Christopher Duigan, featuring Maxene Matthews (Saxophone) and David Salleras (Saxophone)

The Latin Music concerts are presented by Stringwise Records.

About the Latin Music Concert Series

The concert series is coordinated by James Grace, who is head of UCT’s College of Music’s Guitar Studies. He explains the forthcoming series follows from the success of the Magnum Opus concert series hosted earlier in the year.” This time we wanted to involve more artists on stage, hence the amigos (friends) theme, so each concert involves several musicians performing in various ensembles. The Latino theme enables us to do that with great variety.

“We are delighted to provide a platform to showcase the versatility of our world-class musicians and are thrilled to be introducing the celebrated Spanish saxophonist, David Salleras, to local audiences,” adds Grace. Salleras, who is based at the Barcelona Conservatoire, is considered one of Europe’s most exciting and innovative composers and performers.
