SAINT LEO – The School of Arts and Sciences at Saint Leo University presents “Concerto Sangeetam” at 7 p.m., Tuesday, October 13, in Selby Auditorium/Lewis Hall, visible on the immediate right just inside the main entrance to the campus at 33701 State Road 52. That address is four miles east of Interstate 75 (Exit 285) in the town of Saint Leo. Admission is free and all are welcome.
This imaginative, international program showcases the talents of Saint Leo’s visiting Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Vasumathi Badrinathan. Dr. Badrinathan is a linguist from India who is also a vocalist and performer of Carnatic music—the classical music of southern India and a part of the sacred music tradition. She will perform a work never performed before in Florida, called “Ragamalika.” The evening will feature performances with Dr. Cynthia Selph, pianist Inna Korotkevitch, and jazz musician Mauricio Rodriguez, who are all members of Saint Leo’s music faculty. The concert will deliver various combinations of classical Indian, classical Western, and American jazz music.
Concerto Sangeetam is part of this year’s New Moon Concert Series from Saint Leo University’s School of Arts and Sciences. For more information or for special seating needs, contact Megan Orendorf by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (352) 588-8401.
