“West Side Story, bet­ween the clas­sic and the po­pu­lar”,
a look at the ori­gi­nal oral and writ­ten tra­di­tion in percussion.

La­tin per­cus­sion in the or­ches­tra — a dif­fi­cult field. On the one hand, fol­lowing the or­ches­tra and the con­duc­tor, on the other hand, ful­fil­ling the spe­cial re­qui­re­ments of the style. Car­los and Clau­dio have ex­cel­lent ex­pe­ri­ence in both and would like to give the par­ti­ci­pants tips and tricks along the way. In do­ing so, they will fo­cus on the clas­sic par ex­cel­lence: West Side Story by Leo­nard Bernstein.
