When you hear Bridget Kibbey, you’ll toss aside everything you thought you knew about harp music. Praised for her “bravura and sensitivity” (The Washington Post), her daring and diverse programming spans the Baroque era—her performance of J. S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor is a YouTube sensation—to explorations of Brazilian dance music. She regularly performs with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, is a passionate advocate for living composers, and has toured and recorded with such superstars as Plácido Domingo and Dawn Upshaw. In this performance, she invites Latin Grammy–winning composer/percussionist Samuel Torres and clarinetist Louis Arques to join in celebrating NYC’s Nuevo Latino composers alongside the folk music that inspired them.
