This recognized american wind ensemble will perform for the very first time in the United States the sinfonietta nº1 Op.63 Last Day of the Dinossaurs.

Likewise, those attending the event on March 19th -at 7:30 pm- will witness the world presentation of the two trumpets and band version of Concertino de los Filabres, Op.54a.
