Although most of the performing season has been either cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic, Cristina continues with her academic life online, teaching her own NYU class “Invisible Music of Northern Spain” and joining Prof. James P. Honan and Prof. Michael Uy at Harvard University for guest lectures at their respective departments: Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Department of Music.
Cristina’s tenure as the KJC Chair in Spanish Culture and Civilization at NYU started in the Fall of 2019. Apart from teaching, during this academic year she curated and designed five public events using the idea of “invisibility” as a way of connecting the dots between the disciplines she’s worked with over the years, and to address important conversations about the role of the arts in cultural memory, diversity and migration.
The picture above is from her last public event at NYU (March 5th), when Cristina invited her mentor and friend, Yo-Yo Ma, to talk about culture and social responsibility…
