In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, alumnus Felipe Tristán ’11 returns to UNCSA to curate and conduct a program of works by Latinx composers and more. Tristán, a flutist who received his Professional Artist Certificate from UNCSA in 2010, is quickly establishing himself as one of the most sought-after conductors from Mexico, having conducted around the world, across the U.S., and on some of the foremost stages of New York.

In addition to this performance, Tristán and the School of Music will partner with the Hispanic League to include this as part of their 30th Anniversary Colorful Sounds in Concert Series for music educational initiatives in the community during this residency. Join us in Watson Hall for a co-hosted reception with the Hispanic League before the performance.

Felipe Tristán, one of the most sought-after conductors from Mexico, has shown musical excellence and has delivered powerful performances worldwide.
