Fandango’s musicians hail from Spain, the former Yugoslavia, the UK and the US. The group was founded by four virtuosi, who have played separately and together around the world and in prestigious concert halls and festivals. The members of the quartet have performed in Grand County during past seasons as part of different groups.

Flutist Eugenia Moliner is a native of Spain and, her husband, Denis Azabagic, is a guitarist from Bosnia. Another married couple, violinist Desiree Ruhstrat from the US and cellist David Cunliffe from the UK, completes the quartet. Their program combines Latin, Spanish, Sephardic, Balkan and classical sounds, making them a popular addition to Chicago’s music scene.

The upcoming concert has received support from Colorado Creates; WESTAF, the Western States Arts Federation; and the National Endowment for the Arts. As part of the grant, the musicians performed and held workshops in East Grand schools on Thursday.

Fandango! performs at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Eternal Hills in Tabernash.
