The New Philharmonic Orchestra of Irving presents “The Rhythms of Dance” May 21, as its annual Latino Connections concert. The concert wraps up the orchestra’s “Sundays at the Symphony” series for 2016-17 at the Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall. The concert will be preceded by NPOI’s annual silent auction, at 2:30 p.m. in the Carpenter Hall lobby. Selected advanced Irving ISD orchestra students will join NPOI for part of the concert, which also features soloist Nicole Beltran, winner of its Richard Giangiulio Youth Concerto competition, playing the first movement of Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No. 3.” Dr. Sergio Espinosa, NPOI’s conductor and musical director, has programmed these dance-oriented pieces from the world of Latin symphonic music: “Danzón No. 2” by Arturo Marquez, “Suite Estancias” by Alberto Ginastera,” “Sinfonietta” by Pablo Moncayo, “Estampas Nocturnas” by Manuel M. Ponce, and “Sensemayá” by Silvestre Revueltas.
