Guitar lecture at COCC traces instrument’s path in Latin America

A bilingual musical presentation, titled “La Guitarra en Latinoamérica: Appropriations and Transformations,” will trace the history of the classical guitar in Latin America at Central Oregon Community College’s Wille Hall at 4 p.m. on Thursday, October 24. This event is free and open to the public.

Freddy Vilches, associate professor of Hispanic studies at Lewis & Clark College and a multi-instrumentalist, will showcase several guitar variations in this demo-lecture – from the Mexican jarana to the Andean charango – covering different regions and styles of music throughout Latin America. As a musician, Vilches has recorded and performed with a number of Northwest-based Latin bands, including Caliente, Palante and Latin Expression.
