Center for Faith and Life, Main Hall
Spanish bagpiper Cristina Pato turns up the wattage on the traditionally Celtic instrument to deliver a repertoire that’s intense, joyful, wild, and ebullient. Expect an evening of richly layered, fast-paced music as Pato and her high-energy quartet fuse Latin, jazz, pop, and contemporary music into one exhilarating performance.
