About the Bands:
The Amador Sisters are a Latin-based duo comprised of Dali Amador (lead vocals and violin) and Maillelis Martinez (vocals and guitar). The group can be seen around playing around Cincinnati, including at Salsa on the Square in the summer!
The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1974, is widely recognized as one of the leading performing arts organizations in the region, creating intimate, transformative experiences that connect the musically curious. The organization has established an impressive record of presenting highly inventive collaborative programming, partnering with organizations including Madcap Puppets, MamLuft&Co. Dance, Elementz, Cincinnati Observatory and VAE: Cincinnati's Vocal Arts Ensemble. The CCO’s size allows for flexibility and creativity in programming, the ideal ensemble for presenting orchestral works from the Baroque and Classical eras, as well as commissioned works by contemporary composers.
