Atalaya Percussion & Venezuelan Brass Ensembles

Atalaya Percussion & Venezuelan Brass Ensembles

Conducted by Thomas Clamor
Members of Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra

Music is beauty and joy. Nobody knows this better than the youthful Venezuelan ensembles of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, the crown jewel of youth orchestras. Under the direction of Thomas Clamor, the Venezuelan Brass Ensemble has triumphed in world-class venues with their powerful and passionate mix of classical and South American repertoire—while the young percussionists of the Atalaya Percussion Ensemble blend Latin American and Afro-Venezuelan rhythms.
