Transcending Disciplines: An Artist's Journey to Cultural Sustainability (presented in English)

In this lecture, Cristina Pato shares her artistic journey, forging a multifaceted career as an internationally acclaimed Galician bagpipe master, classical pianist, producer, and educator. She also underscores how her multiple identities -- teacher, performer, writer, producer -- are a platform to probe social questions raised by the intersection of classical and folkloric music.
