The Oneppo Chamber Music Series at the Yale School of Music presents a program called Letters from Argentina on Tuesday, March 31 at 7:30 pm.

The program takes its name from the featured piece, Lalo Schifrin‘s Letters from Argentina. Schifrin trained as both a classical and jazz musician and later became a Hollywood composer; this piece, he said, embodies “the musical memories enhanced by my imagination and converted into impressions of my homeland. Working on this project helped me to recreate an unreal past in which a memory persists and invites us to a journey full of promises and dreams.” MORE
