What is Fiesta!?
Fiesta! is an original production of WFMT devoted to Latino concert music that brings artistically significant compositions from Latin America, Spain and Portugal to our listeners. The acclaimed composer, musician, performer, and professor Elbio Barilari, a faculty member of the University of Illinois at Chicago, is the host and creative force behind this series.
