Assistant Professor of Music and soprano Chérie Hughes along with guitarist Roberto Limón will present a special evening of music on Wednesday, March 26, 7:30 p.m. at the Jack Straw Cultural Center in the University District. The duo will discuss and perform music from their recording project as part of the Jack Straw Artist in Residence program.
The project includes nine Sephardic songs by Catalonian composer Matilde Salvador, and the premiere of a new work set to the poetry of Holocaust survivor Henriette Asseo and written for them by New York-based Mexican composer Samuel Zyman.
Hughes has performed throughout the United States and Mexico and is a frequent collaborator with Limón, a member of the Mexican government’s Grupos Artísticos de Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes. They are both resident artists of Jack Straw Productions, the Northwest's only nonprofit multidisciplinary audio arts center. (Photo credit: Jack Straw Cultural Center.)
