2 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2014 UPCOMING EVENTS Habaneros Ricks Off with neros concert Submitted by GCCCAI Silver City An eclectic blend of the world's great music will be mak- ing its way to Silver City for the Grant County Community Con- cert Association's 2014-15 con- cert season. Performances will feature favorite songs from the 60s, a battling duo of pianists, an innovative wind ensemble, a prize-winning violinist, and a dynamic group of country sing- ers and dancers from Nashville.

Habaneros is a string quartet joined by virtuoso clari- netist Alden Ortuno Cabeias. Though classically trained, Habaneros will not only delight you with familiar pieces by such composers as Mozart, they will also introduce you to Latin rep- ertoire that will surely have you clapping and tapping! In addi- tion to the music, onscreen im- agery of Cuba will take the au- dience on a beautiful visual jour- ney of place and culture. The Habaneros concert has the support of WESTAF, the Western States Arts Federation, and of the National Endowment of the Arts. Tickets to Habaneros for non-subscribers will be $20 for adults.
