Gema Corredera Hits the Miami Stage with the Florida Chamber Orchestra
With impeccable vocal technique and mind-blowing interpretations, Cuban songstress, producer, musicologist and guitarist, Gema Corredera displays absolute mastery of her voice. She leads her listeners through intricate phrasing, improvisation and singular virtuosity, while making it all sound so perfectly simple. The digital Cuban music blog, timba.com, recently raved about Gema Corredera’s versatility: “there don’t seem to be many things that she can’t do with her voice, from imitating a muted trumpet to opening up with operatic force".
Gema Corredera will be one of the performers in the 20th Anniversary Florida Chamber Orchestra concert on Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 5PM. The concert, titled "Herencia Cubana" (Cuban Heritage), will feature six singers who will each dedicate their songs to different Cuban cities. The musicians will be directed by Marlene Urbay, founder and musical director of the the Chamber Orchestra, and her father José Ramón Urbay.

What the critics say about Gema Corredera:
-"master vocalist" – Latin Jazz Network
"...a quietly confident and prodigious musical talent. Her velvety voice has some of the burnished golden tones of a trumpet or saxophone, but can also take on a poignant, silvery harmonic sharpness. She sings with supple, beautifully defined rhythm..." – The Miami Herald
