On August 9 and 12, 2006, the prestigious Grant Park Music Festival of Chicago under the artistic direction of Jim Palermo produced a concert of Latin American masterpieces under the baton of Carlos Kalmar, and with choral preparation by Christopher Bell. Aguavá New Music Studio's Music Director Carmen Helena Téllez consulted with Maestros Kalmar and Bell in the preparation of La Cantata Criolla or Florentino, The One Who Sang With The Devil. Aguavá's associated artists Ulises Solano and Nelson Martínez performed the central roles of Florentino and the Devil. The program also included Villa-Lobos's extraordinary Choros No.10, and Ariel Ramírez's beloved Misa Criolla. Read the Chicago Tribune review.
