Fiesta for All - Celebrating Hispanic and Latin Music & Dance
The Denver Gay Men’s Chorus returns to venues throughout the Denver metropolitan area during March 2019 with a high-spirited celebration of great Hispanic and Latin artists. Our Fiesta for All will spotlight Hispanic and Latin heritage and the colorful and moving impact this special music and dance has in our community. Audiences will enjoy a fiery retrospective of the sounds and flavors of Latin America and Spain including: Spanish and Mexican folksongs; Mariachi tunes; Tangos of Argentina; and Salsas of Brazil and Cuba.
Under the direction of James Knapp, the 120-voices of the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus will be joined on stage by an eight-piece band and twenty colorful dancers to perform popular hits, including “Let’s Get Loud” by Gloria Estefan; Consuelo Velázquez’ romantic bolero, “Bésame Mucho”; “Remember Me” from the movie Coco; Ricky Martin’s high-energy “Livin’ La Vida Loca”; and the classic ballad, “Gracias a la Vida” by Chilean artist Violeta Parra.
And, keeping with its mission of Building Community Through Music, the DGMC’s Fiesta for All will include collaborations with Ballet Folklorico Baile Caliente, Semblanzas de Mexico, Museo De Las Americas, the Mexican Consulate and the Mexican Cultural Center.
Let’s get loud! Turn the music up to hear that sound! Join the DGMC for Fiesta for All
