Besides selections for Solo Harp & Orchestra, the album will also include several solo & ensemble selections and film footage from her touring show “Tango Del Cielo” with Argentine Tango, Flamenco, Spanish Classical, and Latin Jazz. The ensemble musicians are comprised of principal players with orchestras joined by award winning dancers.
