The Lied Live Online concert series continues in July with an eclectic lineup.
- July 17: Jarana — Jarana means “party” in Spanish, and this edition of Lied Live Online will bring the party into viewers’ homes. Daniel Martinez’s solo performance on Lied Live Online in April was an audience favorite, and now he returns with Stephen Cantarero, Oscar Rios and Jami Fristo. This Lincoln-based band blends South American, Mexican folk and Latin dance styles, fusing sounds of the Andes with acoustic flamenco riffs, rock beats and the salsa flavor of montunos and timbales.
July 24: Eric Zuber — This acclaimed classical pianist has thrilled audiences around the world. Since making his orchestral debut at age 12, Zuber has established himself as one of the leaders of a new generation of American pianists. He has performed with many of the major orchestras in the United States and abroad, and made solo appearances at the Kennedy Center, Sydney Opera House and more. He is also the lead teaching artist at this summer’s Lied Center Piano Academy, taking place online July 19-25. Zuber’s Lied Live Online performance will include works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
July 31: Dixie Longate — This fast-talking, gum-chewing, ginger-haired Alabama gal brings your grandma’s Tupperware party into the 21st century. This sassy diva has been charming audiences off-Broadway and around the country since 2007 with her outrageously funny tales and homespun wisdom as the star of “Dixie Longate’s Tupperware Party.”
Lied Live Online won’t be held in August and will resume as a monthly series in September.
