'Para Observar los Cielos' and 'Canción Exaltada'

Composer Tony Solitro.
Composer Tony Solitro.

Hear the work of two composers: Carlos Carrillo and Tony Solitro.

Carrillo’s “Para Observar los Cielos” (To Observe the Heavens) examines identity from the concept of iconic places, including a very special place in Puerto Rico, the Arecibo Observatory.

Solitro’s “Canción Exaltada” is a work about finding your voice, and was inspired by the liberation poetry of Julia de Burgos, an early 20th-century Puerto Rican poet and civil rights activist.
