Latin America 2017

A string sextet including students and Curtis President Roberto Díaz recently completed an eighteen-day, six-city tour of Latin America. From October 5–23, they traveled and performed in Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, and three venues in Chile (Santiago, Talca, and Chillán). Along the way, the group performed for schools, gave master classes, and worked with local musicians at every opportunity.
