About the Artists
Featuring two GRAMMY-nominees, FANDANGO! is a toe-tappingly spicy mix of Latin, Spanish, Sephardic, Balkan, and classical sounds performed by multi-award-winning, globe-trotting virtuosi who hail from Spain, the USA, former Yugoslavia, and the UK, and who have played, separately and together, on the world’s most prestigious stages.
In 2015-16 and 2016-17, Fandango! performed on the prestigious Dumbarton Oaks series in Washington DC, Roosevelt University’s Ganz Hall in Chicago, and the Bermuda International Festival, and toured Hawaii, Arizona, Florida and many other parts of the USA. This season’s tours will bring them from the Pacific Northwest to the Florida Keys, to the mid-Atlantic region.
Fandango’s educational enrichment presentations encourage the students’ creativity, spark a life-long interest in music and broadens comprehension of cultural and historical aspects of their world. Because of the diverse backgrounds of the four musicians that form Fandango (British, Bosnian, Spanish and American) the interesting distinct instruments they play and the variety of music they offer, the children develop critical thinking skills and understanding of issues such as tolerance, acceptance, cultural diversity and teamwork. The children’s response is overwhelmingly positive, and often, from the young kindergarteners to high school students, Fandango’s performance will be the only live classical music they have ever heard.
Fandango musicians are passionate and very committed to bring music to schools and communities around the country. Kids are our future performers and audience. Fandango’s mission is to play and share their joy of music making, and to plant the seed of love for music in those who haven’t discover it yet. Fandango is constantly touched by the feedback that they receives from presenters, students and their teachers after their performances.
