It's nice to see that conductor Raymond Harvey has included Villa-Lobos as one of three featured composers (along with Debussy and Rachmaninoff) in the "World of..." concerts in the coming season's Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra programme.

Sunday, April 5 (2009) – 3pm Light Fine Arts Center (Kalamazoo College Campus, corner Academy & Thompson)
Raymond Harvey, Conductor
Raymond Harvey guides you through the life, times, and music of Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos. Villa-Lobos combined the color, rhythms, and flavor of Brazil with classical structures to create an evocative and beautiful sound.
