Prof. Jorge Torres (Music, Lafayette College) will discuss the Jannina Norpoth arrangement of Ernesto Lecuona’s Suite Andalucía with Orpheus musicians.  Jannina Norpoth is a two-time grammy nominee violinist, educator, and arranger who has performed internationally, including appearances at the Women of the World Festival at The Apollo Theater, Detroit Art X Festival, Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival, Mostly Mozart Festival, Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, Saturday Night Live, VH1’s Save the Music, IFC's Dinner with the Band, and Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Hall. Ernesto Lecuona y Casado (1896 – 1963) was a Cuban composer and pianist, many of whose works have become standards of the Latin, jazz and classical repertoires. His over 600 compositions include songs and zarzuelas as well as pieces for piano and symphonic orchestra. (pictured Ernesto Lecuona)
