November 19, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

Flier for the Ode to Hope presentation. Hilary Field, Classical Guitarist and composer, along with Seattle’s first Civic Poet Claudia Castro Luna and Venezuelan theater artist Milvia Pacheco, in conjunction with Studio Lazo, present a free concert of new compositions and poems which 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,” (Ode to Hope) this will be an evening of art and guitar music of the Americas, as well as poems in Spanish and English, all enveloped by the timeless and timely theme of hope.
