Events : LULAC's "Political Candidates Night" a smashing success!
Posted by admin on 2009/10/14 5:50:00 (1812 reads)

The first ever ""Political Candidates Night for Latino Community" that took place on Wed. Oct. 14 at Su Casa Hispanic Center, was a smashing success. Close to 100 members of the Latino Community showed up to learn about the candidates, their platform, and why the Latino voters should vote for them.

Each candidate was asked to present their platform, and then the audience had a chance to ask them direct questions.

The LULAC Cincinnati Council would like to thank all candidates who took the time from their very busy schedule to come and meet with the Latino Community. It was a chance to initiate a direct dialog, and we were very happy that almost all candidates took advantage of it.

All Candidates who showed up:

Mayor of Cincinnati:

Mark Mallory (D)Brad Wenstrub (R)

Kristjan Järvi Returns to Cincinnati for Some Spicey “Latin Nights”

PNC Headliners concerts to feature the CSO debut of Carel Kraayehnof playing the bandoneón

Friday marks the first of Jean-Robert’s Pre-Concert Moveable Feasts

CINCINNATI—The New York Times calls Paavo Järvi’s younger brother Kristjan “a kinetic force on the podium.”  Following a dynamic concert on New Year’s Eve with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 2007 and conducting the CSO in Cincinnati Opera’s production of Nixon in China in 2008, Kristjan Järvi returns to the Music Hall stage for two exciting PNC Headliners concerts dubbed “Latin Nights” on Friday, October 2 and Saturday, October 3.  Both performances start at 8 p.m. and feature the CSO debut of Carel Kraayenhof playing the bandoneón, a South American button accordion composer Astor Piazzolla frequently played and featured in his sensuous Aconcagua Concerto.

Dances from the “gaucho” ballet Estancia and the sounds and rhythms of Revueltas’ Mexican folk music (including a rollicking cadenza featuring 15 exotic percussion instruments) complete this weekend of Latin delights.
