On Tuesday October 27, at 2 p.m. at the Nolin Murray Center next to St. Mary's Catholic Church on Pleasant Street in Springfield Maricel Lucero will present the next Osher Lifelong Learning program titled, "Cuba:Past and Present."
A native of Santiago de Cuba, Lucero came to the U.S. with her parents at the age of 10. An award winning soprano, she is known for her performances in a variety of genres including Opera, musical theater, Latin American music and jazz. She teaches piano and voice at her home studio in Springfield.
Lucero's program will include general information and a brief history of Cuba and a discussion of U. S./Cuba relations during the past 50 years. She will show slide photos of the Feminine Tone women's chorus trips to Cuba, highlighting their participation in the international music festival.
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute membership is $40 for the semester which includes 9 programs. Non-members are encouraged and welcome to attend individual lectures for a single program fee of $8. Local benefactors for the entire semester programs are Barbara and Robert Sanderson.
