Spanish Sounds: Celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the Lorraine Boccardo Black Box Theater

The Center for the Arts at Kayenta welcomes acclaimed pianist and composer Leanne Rees—daughter of Lorraine Boccardo—performing Spanish Sounds, a concert to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Lorraine Boccardo Black Box Theater. The performance will take place Friday, October 20 at 5 p.m.

This celebratory concert features classical music in the Spanish tradition with pieces ranging from Claude Debussy’s “Habanera” to Alberto Ginestera’s “Milonga” and Isaac Albeniz’s “Malaguena,” as well as her own new work, with accompanying visuals.

Leanne’s recordings include “Music by American Women Composers” by Bravura Recordings and “Women Composers and the Men in Their Lives,” which was released under the Fleur de Son Classics label and made it to the final ballot for a Grammy Award. Ms. Rees will honor her mother with this concert. “Her lifelong love for the arts and active involvement helped shape the artistic talents of many people, including my brother and me,” said Rees.

A full reception follows with food and drink. Tickets are $40 ($35 if purchased on or before 10/15) and include reception.
