David Ford chats with Casa Azul board members Claudia Femenias and Mariana Pardy.
The Hispanic arts movement is bursting with excitement and creativity in the Triad. In 2010 a group of Latino professionals and artists in Greensboro formed Casa Azul to promote Latin American art and culture and to create a bridge between communities in Guilford County. On Saturday night, February 9 at 7:00pm Casa Azul of Greensboro will partner with the recently remodeled gallery and studios of 205 Collaborative at 205 Lyndon Street in downtown Greensboro for Noche de Arte y Tango.
The saxophone was invented by Adolph Sax in the mid-1800s and since then the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones have played huge roles in wind ensembles, military bands, and in jazz concert halls. The sax has also become the instrument of choice for dozens of contemporary composers including John Adams, Arvo Parte, and David Rakowski.
