  • Description

    Latino Voices is a concert of innovative works for soprano and flute featuring Latino composers, poets, and folk stories. Funded by the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture, chamber ensemble Anima Vox made a call for scores in 2018, selected winning compositions, and has been performing this music both nationally and internationally in order to contribute to the dissemination of Latino Art and Culture. Our goal with this program is to foster the opportunity for the music and poetry of Latin Americans to enter the mainstream chamber music repertoire.

    The duo Anima Vox is an innovative flute and soprano duo specializing in seamless concert experiences and free improvisation. Flutist Tadeu Coelho and soprano Carole Ott Coelho blend their voices in ways that are simultaneously striking and ethereal. Always striving to diversify the chamber music field, the duo's repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to free improvisation and everything in between. Recent concert projects include Between Two Worlds, Lullabies for Little Ones, and Burning Bright.

    SOPRANO CAROLE OTT COELHO is Associate Director of Choral Activities at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her degrees include the Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts in conducting from the University of Michigan where she studied with Jerry Blackstone. She also holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music where her primary instrument was French Horn.

    Brazilian-born ARTIST/FLUTIST TADEU COELHO is professor of flute at the University North Carolina School of the Arts. In 2013-14 he received both the UNCSA and the North Carolina Board of Governors Excellence in Teaching Award. Coelho has taught at the University of Iowa and at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Coelho frequently appears as soloist, chamber musician, and master clinician throughout the Americas.
