Studio Lazo to host Ode to Hope

We are excited to host Ode to Hope- New guitar music, poetry and art of the Americas, featuring work by classical guitarist and composer, Hilary Field and poet, Claudia Castro Luna, alongside Fulgencio's art.

Date: Sunday, November 19, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm 
Venue: Studio Lazo 
Address: 1614 South Jackson Street, Seattle, Washington, 98144 

The artists will be presenting new compositions and poems that integrate the musical language of poetry with the expressive phrasing of the classical guitar, surrounded by the vivid and joyful paintings of Oaxaca native, Fulgencio Lazo. Inspired by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s poem “Oda a la Esperanza”, this will be an evening of art of the Americas, enveloped by the theme of hope. The concert will also feature poems set to music from Castro Luna’s new book, “Killing Marías,” written in memory of the women and girls killed in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, and for all women and girls who are victims of domestic violence.
This project is supported by generous grants from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture, and by Casa Latina.
Free admission and light refreshments following the performance.
