Pre-show Artist Talk with Roberto Fonseca
Roberto Fonseca has been hailed as “one of the world’s great pianists and one of the finest of Cuba’s new generation of musicians” (The Evening Standard). He joins us on stage before his performance at the Chan Centre for a special artist talk, moderated by renowned percussionist and Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Provost and VP Academic Dr. Sal Ferreras. Their conversation will touch on Fonseca’s fascinating life and music, including touring with Buena Vista Social Club and the inspiration behind his latest album ABUC which he describes as a “review” of the rich history of music in Cuba.
This pre-show talk is FREE for Daymé Arocena and Roberto Fonseca ticket holders only and takes place in the Chan Shun Concert Hall from 6:00 – 6:30pm. Please note that seating for the talk is general admission.
