Claudia Acuna
International Women Rising Series
Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 3 pm & 8 pm
DESCRIPTION

Latin Grammy Award nominee, Claudia Acuña, presents a two part musical celebration to mark International Women's Day. Broadcast live from Northampton's historic Academy of Music Theatre, the production captures the intimacy of her performance and the majesty of this historic opera house. Audience members are invited to join via Zoom so they can "be seen" by the artists on a video wall in the orchestra pit.

Growing up in Chile, Claudia dreamed of performing in the iconic jazz clubs of New York City. She fell in love with this unfamiliar music while listening to international stations on her transistor radio. At age 20, she sold all of her possessions and immigrated to the US with no English and little more than her own ambitions. In a short period of time, she gained recognition as one of the most intriguing and original vocalists on the scene. "She sings in the tradition of the great ones." remarked Abbey Lincoln, " Her sound is her own."

Claudia will be joined for two separate concerts by Pablo Vergara on piano, Carlos Henderson on bass, Juancho Herrera on guitar, and Rodrigo Recabarren on drums.
