Fiesta Sinfónica, a Houston Symphony tradition, celebrates Hispanic Heritage month with a free concert that highlights Latin American music and classic favorites. Conductor Rafael Enrique Irizarry leads the orchestra through a colorful, multicultural program while giving a special nod to his native Puerto Rican roots with an orchestral arrangement of the well-known Puerto Rican bolero En Mi Viejo San Juan by Noel Estrada—often considered an unofficial national anthem for Puerto Rico. Plus, Jack Delano’s Sinfonietta para Cuerdas—based on Puerto Rican rhythms—and selections from Bernstein’s masterpiece multicultural musical, West Side Story. The program also features works like the “Final Dance” from Falla’s Suite No. 2 from El Sombrero de tres picos, selections from Bizet’s Suites No. 1 and 2 from Carmen, Moncayo’s Huapango, and the finale of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol, Opus 34.
