On today’s Weekend Passport, the Music of the Americas Ensemble takes us on a musical tour of Latin America.  The group will discuss and perform classics from masters, such as Juan Bautista Plaza (Venezuela) and Eduardo Gamboa (Mexico). The Ensemble is composed of flutist Nicaulis Alliey, violists Ariel Garcia, Jose Escalona, and cellist Juan Horie. As always, our global citizen, Nari Safavi, joins us to give you a couple ideas to help you plan your international weekend!
