Christina Jennings in Cuba
December 9, 2012
Christina Jennings just returned from Havana, Cuba where she presented a concert and master class with the Philadelphia new music ensemble: Orchestra 2001. The concert was sponsored by Havana’s 25th Festival of Contemporary Music which took place at the “Basilica Menor del Convento de San Francisco de Asis.” The program included George Crumb’s “Dream Sequence” and “Night of the Four Moons,” together with Jay Reise’s new “Flight of the Red Sea Swallow” for flute and piano written for Christina Jennings.
She also gave a master class at Havana’s Amadeo Roldan Conservatory. Among the gifts she brought to these talented and underserved students, was the complete Rubank Method Books for all band instruments, compliments at the CU Band Department.
