The CUSO season finale is a community celebration of vibrant Latin music, from the scintillating rhythms of Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, inspired by a trip to Havana, to the brilliant orchestral dances of Márquez and Moncayo. Guitarist Colin Davin will delight you in music of Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

CUSO is pleased to be joined by the young musicians of the East Central Illinois Youth Orchestra, who will perform Danzón No. 2 side-by-side with their counterparts in CUSO.

Community guitar aficionados will join in for a lively group performance of Malagueña, as we conclude the CUSO season with this evening of fun and colorful music.
