   THE 11th annual Chicago Latino Music Festival kicks off September 8 and continues through December 1, with concerts featuring Latin American and Spanish music from the Baroque to the 21st century. Presented by the International Latino Cultural Center, the Chicago Latino Music Festival––organized by artistic directors and composers Gustavo Leone and Elbio Barilari––acts as a source to present Latino classical music to audiences in Chicago. 
   This year’s festival will feature six world premieres and three U.S. premieres during its run of performances that will showcase world-renowned entertainers at several venues around the city. In explaining the festival’s growing popularity, Leone says: “I think the festival fills a gap, the gap that is very important to understand the Hispanic community. Although we tend to associate Latin American music to mostly Mexican music, the wealth and variety of cultures involved in music from the rest of the countries in the Americas is enormous. It also goes back to the 1600s, and we present music from the 1600s, 1700s that were practiced in the church at the time, and we bring it back to life in our festival."
