Classico Latino live at Union Chapel

On 26 October, Classico Latino will be performing at the Union Chapel. The concert will be the launch of their new album Latin American Classicas: A Musical Journey Through South America. Classico Latino is a trio which plays Latin American Music on western classical instruments, with cellist Graham Walker, violinist Lizzie Ball and pianist Ivan Guevara.

The new album features guest appearances from a number of musicians including the Gentlemen of the choir of St Johns College Cambridge, and Columbian singing star Andres Cepeda.

The trio Classico Latino is an intriguing group. It was formed in 1999 by two rising stars of the British classical music scene, cellist Graham Walker and violinist Lizzie Ball, along with  Colombian pianist Iván Guevara. They play Latin American rhythms using classical techniques, combining new arrangements of Latin American traditional songs, along with their own compositions.
