The Camerata Campbell and the soprano from Chihuahua,Carla Portillo, presented a program this Sunday at the Angela Peralta Theater that showed some of the most exquisite pieces of classicism and baroque during the continuation of the concerts of the Gordon Campbell Season 2018.

At the end of the piece, the audience was fortunate to hear the three movements of the “Concert for trumpet and Orchestra in D” by the Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini with the brilliant performance of Héctor Tomás, considered one of the best trumpet players in Mexico.
Carla Portillo, Héctor Tomás and twelve strings and brass of the Camerata Campbell, sent the show to an intermission after provoking a wealth of sensations in the audience after the interpretation of the fragment “Rejoice” from The “Messiah” and “Let the Serafin shine” from the opera “Solomon”, for soprano, trumpet and orchestra” by Georg Friedrich Händel.
