Marija Temo will be a guest soloist with the Parma Symphony Orchestra, performing “Tango Fantasy” a work written for Marija Temo by Loris Chobanian that combines the characteristic qualities of both the Argentinean Tango and the Flamenco Tango of Andalusia. This will indeed be a special and momentous occasion in that the composer, Loris Chobanian, will be conducting his own work with Marija Temo performing.
On a personal note: Loris was my undergraduate guitar professor when I attended Baldwin-Wallace College, and I am looking so forward to reuniting with him for this event. A special thank you to Dr. Randolph P. Laycock, Music Director of the Parma Symphony, and Joe Germana, Business Manager.

This Sat., Nov. 16, 2013, at 2:00p.m., a Flamenco Documentary, on The History of Flamenco in the US, will be showing in D.C.
I, along with other accomplished D.C. flamenco artists (as well as a mentor/colleague of mine, Manolo Leiva, who passed away last year) will also be featured in the film.
The director, Carolina Loyola- Garcia, has put her passion for flamenco, determined efforts in traveling throughout the US, and talents as a director and interviewer to compile and present Sobre las Olas- a story of flamenco in the US. If you are able to attend, it would be wonderful to support her efforts. Read More »
