Lafayette is getting some top notch performers lately.
This Sunday, January 15th, the Acadiana Center for the Arts is the meeting place for artists and virtuosos of classical and flamenco guitar. Virginia Luque.
As a guest artist with the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, Luque’s performance is part of The Lecture Hall Chamber Music Series.
The Listening Room Chamber Music Series, presented by Kean Miller, is a four-part concert series that premiered last August as a collaboration between the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
The new series offers audiences the opportunity to discover lesser-known but highly regarded classical music works, performed in an intimate, salon-like setting by small chamber ensembles and guest musicians from around the world.
On Sunday, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and Virginia Luque take audiences on a musical journey from the pristine churches of Venice, Italy, to the colorful streets of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A colorful repertoire of songs by well-known composers such as Vivaldi, Chopin and Astor Piazzolla – as well as Luque herself, who is an accomplished composer – is on the set list.
Virginia Luque is a native of Algeciras, Spain who has played all over the world and is known for her technical command, beautiful tone and excellent musicianship on the guitar, particularly in the Spanish Romantic Classical style.
She started playing the guitar at the age of four, started playing the guitar at the age of six and gave her first concert at the age of seven.
ASO General Manager Dana Baker is really looking forward to this show.
It’s not often that we have the pleasure of incorporating guitar tones into our concerts – particularly those that offer the beauty and allure of Spanish Romanticism. – Dana Baker, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra
After the concert there will be a meet-and-greet with Luque, where concert-goers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with the artist.
The concert starts at 3 p.m. Tickets are available online at Acadiana Symphony Orchestra website.
