Note: we've reached our limit for sign-ups to Pianist Jacqueline Schwab in (virtual) concert:
Building Bridges—Vintage Music of Latin America
Jacqueline celebrates the sensual spirit, expressive melodies and pulsing dance rhythms of vintage habaneras, tangos, and waltzes, from Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Mexico. These styles were the forerunners of samba, salsa, and other Latin music of today. Familiar and less well known melodies by composers Ernesto Nazareth, Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes, Juan Jose Castro and more, in classical and folk arrangements.
Film maker Ken Burns states: “Jacqueline Schwab brings more feeling and intensity to music than anyone I know. Her playing is insistent, physical, heartfelt and ... unusually moving.” Jacqueline played for his Grammy-winning Civil War, Baseball, Lewis and Clark, Mark Twain, The War, and The National Parks, among others. She has performed on The Irish in America, Ric Burns’ New York: A Documentary Film and other PBS documentaries and has been composer/music director for two documentaries: Mary Cassatt—A Brush with Independence and Simple Servants—The Story of the Lewis County Mennonites. She has performed at the White House for President Clinton, A Prairie Home Companion and the Late Show with David Letterman.
