UTRGV School of Music will present an evening concert featuring Indian Sitar music by Dr. Amie Maciszewski and Ensemble, on Tuesday, October 3, at 7 p.m. in the Library Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
Sitarist Amie Maciszewski is an award-winning artist and educator. Audiences describe Amie’s classical sitar/tabla and Indo-jazz fusion ensemble performances as “stunning” and “amazing.” Her Sangeet Millennium Ensemble (Texas Top Ten award, 2008 and 2011 Austin Chronicle polls) seamlessly blends traditional Indian melodies with jazz/world grooves, creating an ever-evolving boundary-defying sound. Passionate about sharing North Indian music culture, Amie has traveled three continents completing artist residencies, hosting recitals, and conducting lectures on Hindustani music. She also conducts dynamic all-ages workshops on classical, folk, and world fusion. Amie’s musical credits include four CDs and a number of independent films.
The Indian Sitar concert is organized by Dr. Silvia Lazo, Assist. Professor of Musicology and Ethnomusicology, and is promoted by the students of the World Music course. Co-sponsored by the Texas Commission on the Arts.
