A Woman's Voice: Gabriela Lena Frank
The Hillside Club lecture series, " Woman's Voice" presents "Musica Mestiza" with composer Gabriela Frank who will address cross-cultural influences in classical piano music using live examples. Her dynamic style and enthusiasm for many styles of music should make this a very enjoyable presentation.
