This lecture and performance will feature Pavel Polanco-Safadit as he brings together a six-piece ensemble that includes two Latin musicians and four members of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Together they will explore a spectrum of Latin music and how new musical genres have developed as Latin rhythms met other styles.

His compositions have been performed in many locations throughout the United States, Europe, and Latin America. He has composed pieces in various styles, such as modern music, popular Latin music, and jazz. As a pianist, Polanco-Safadit performs classical, worship, orchestral, modern, salsa, merengue, bachata, and Latin jazz music. This event is open to the public at no charge;registration is required.
