Latin American Ensemble

Gabriel Espinosa, director

MUS 101-07

The Latin American Ensemble of Grinnell College was founded in the fall of 2001. Primarily comprised of college students and directed by a professor of music, the ensemble has performed a variety of styles of Latin music including bolero, son, cha, tango and Brazilian folk song. Each semester the group focuses on a different style of Latin music, and the selected pieces are presented to the Grinnell community at the end of each term. In addition to the end-of-semester concerts, the ensemble has performed for a variety of local organizations: as part of "cruise night" at the retirement and nursing home community; in compliment of a Brazilian art exhibit at the Faulconer Gallery; for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at a local restaurant; and as part of the annual talent show organized by the College’s International Student Organization.
