Music From the AmericasCommunity
Founded in 20I2 by Dr. José-Luis Hurtado, the Music from the Americas Concert Series’ main purpose is to present the vast spectrum of music of all periods composed or performed by musicians born or residing in the American Continent.
Guest artists complement and enrich the musical and cultural vision of our community by offering concerts and public lectures, as well as workshops, premieres and reading sessions for our music students.
The Music from the Americas Concert Series is a permanent initiative supported by The UNM Department of Music, the UNM College of Fine Arts, the UNM Latin American and Iberian Institute, the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque, the Secretary of Culture of Mexico, and numerous local and International Institutions.
