Orchestra of St. Luke's: Viajes y Raíces
The orchestra returns to our stage with string quartets by Tania León, inti figgis-vizueta, and Keyla Orozco.
The Orchestra of St. Luke’s Viajes y Raíces, or Journeys and Origins, is an intimate reflection on memory, place, and identity. The performance features the music of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tania León, alongside formidable composers in León’s creative community: inti figgis-vizueta and Keyla Orozco. Paying homage to a wide variety of traditions, the concert program includes a series of string quartets, illuminating how each composer reflects on their own origins and explorations through their distinct musical language.
