In my Click Pick #16 I introduced you to the young Mexican contemporary scene. I just recived a note from one of the musicians profiled, flutist/composer Wilfrido Terrazas, that I’ll pass along:

Friday, May 4, 2007 at 7PM
Wilfrido Terrazas, flutist
New Mexican Works for Flute

Free Admission

Americas Society
680 Park Avenue
New York, NY

This concert, organized in collaboration with ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble), is part of a project during which the flutist has collaborated with some of Mexico’s most daring and original composers in pieces that explore novel ways of writing for his instrument. The concert will feature new works by Mauricio Rodríguez, Víctor Adán, Ignacio Baca Lobera, Hiram Navarrete and Juan José Bárcenas, and is made possible by a grant from Mexico’s FONCA.
Founded in 2001, the International Contemporary Ensemble is a uniquely structured chamber music ensemble comprised of thirty young performers who are dedicated to advancing the music of our time. This concert is part of ICE’s Young Composers Mini-Festival, which that will take place at different venues throughout New York from April 30th to May 4th.

See? It all comes together… You’re practically old friends now, so turn out and give Willy a warm welcome.

    Dear Willy, I wish you all the best in NY.

    To everyone else, don’t miss Willy’s concert, he’s a truly great player and a wonderful guy.

  3. Well, actually, he’s about to turn 50, but he’s the only exception in the program. Besides, his piece is awesome!
    Hope to see you there!
    Wilfrido Terrazas

    Didn’t you hear that 40 is the new 20?! 🙂

    I;m not sure Ignacio Baca Lobera belongs on a “Young Composers Mini-Festival”. He’s in his mid 40s. However, he is a terrific composer!
