Voces Eternas

Date TIme
Tuesday, Nov. 21 8:00 PM

Voces Eternas is a multi-movement work created for an expanded Latin jazz orchestra. This work seeks to capture the emotions involved in the human experience of finding one's truth about one's heart and soul as it relates to the many conflicts we have in our under-represented marginalized communities. The Houston Latin Jazz Orchestra, led by Jose Antonio Diaz, will feature the artistry of Houston's best Latin jazz musicians.

José Antonio Diaz is the founder and artistic director for the award-winning organization Diaz Music Institute in Houston, Texas. Recently, Jose was selected as a recipient of the 2023 BIPOC Arts Network & Fund (BANF) Artist Award. Diaz is a Grammy Nominated Music Educator Top 10 Finalist, Country Music Association Foundation's Music Teacher of Excellence, winner of Berklee College of Music's John LaPorta Jazz Educator of the Year Award, and recipient of the Mayor's Hispanic Heritage Award. Inducted into DownBeat Magazine's Jazz Hall of Fame, Diaz has performed with such artists as Ignacio Berroa, Candido, Pete Escovedo, Oscar Hernandez, Eddie Palmieri, Danilo Perez, David Sanchez, Arturo Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, Nestor Torres, Chucho Valdes, Dave Valentin, Jose Valentino and Miguel Zenon to name just a few.
