Instituto Cervantes at Harvard Public Lecture

March 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Commemorating International Women’s Day with artist Cristina Pato

“Transcending Disciplines: An Artist’s Journey to Cultural Sustainability”

In this lecture, Cristina Pato shares her artistic journey, forging a multifaceted career as an internationally acclaimed Galician bagpiper master, classical pianist, producer and educator. Without a precedent to follow and in a world where “nobody needs a bagpiper,” Dr. Pato charted her own path to become an independent artist and became passionate about exploring the role of the arts in other contexts, especially education. In this session at the Observatorio, which commemorates International Women’s Day, Dr. Pato will share how she has made herself relevant to other disciplines and, in doing so, built a sustainable career. She will also underscore how her multiple identities are a platform to probe social questions raised by the intersection of classical and folkloric music.


En esta conferencia, Cristina Pato compartirá el viaje artístico en el que se forjó una carrera multifacética como maestra de la gaita gallega de fama internacional, pianista clásica, productora y educadora. Sin precedente alguno que poder seguir, y en un mundo en el que “nadie necesita gaiteros”, la Dra. Pato trazó su propio camino para convertirse en una artista independiente y apasionada por explorar la función de las artes en distintos contextos, especialmente en la educación. En esta sesión del Observatorio que celebra el Día Internacional de la Mujer, la Dra. Pato compartirá cómo se ha hecho relevante para otras disciplinas, desarrollando así una carrera sostenible. También explicará cómo sus múltiples identidades constituyen una plataforma para investigar cuestiones sociales planteadas por la intersección de la música clásica y folklórica.
