presents world premiere
by Patricia Lopes
Saturday, March 25 @ 7 PM CT

There is no better way to welcome spring than with music and art, and LunART has the perfect event for you! LunART presents Flower Cycle: Celebrating Spring with Music and Art on Saturday, March 25 at 7 p.m. at the Oakwood Village West Auditorium.


Madison audiences will have the privilege to witness the world premiere of a piece written by Brazilian composer, Patricia Lopes. The work “Flower Cycle” is a collection of musical vignettes each representing a different flower. It features a diverse tonal palette written for nine performers, including strings, winds, harp and vibraphone. The audience is invited to stay after the performance for a Q&A session with the composer, and a reception courtesy of Willy Street Co-Op.  


In true LunART style, this performance will be accompanied by watercolor paintings created by young artists from Little Picassos, who range in ages 4-12. LunART is committed to offering an educational component, and young art students will have the opportunity to hear and see a variety of instruments up close, exploring color and texture through both music and art during a private pre-concert session presented by LunART artists. 


We look forward to seeing you!

Meet Patricia Lopes

Patricia Lopes is a Brazilian composer and pianist with a multiple rooted musical identity. Her latest works as a composer are “The feminine in Pessoa”, a set of compositions based on poems by Fernando Pessoa, for voice and ensemble, performed by OCAM (Chamber Orchestra of the University of São Paulo) and “Hortensia”, for woodwind and string ensemble. In October 2017 she performed, in Portugal, the concert “The feminine in Pessoa” at the International Jazz Festival of Caldas da Rainha and at Casa da America Latina in Lisbon, with the violist Lyda Chen Argerich as her special guest.

Patricia Lopes has recently pursued a PhD in Music, with her research focused on the musical universe of the Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim at University of São Paulo (USP), and performed in 2016 Jobim’s song Matita Pere (1973) alongside Dori Caymmi and the Chamber Orchestra of the University of São Paulo, with the conductor Gil Jardim.

Throughout her academic education, she has studied with the concert pianist Linda Bustani, and holds a Master’s Degree in Musical Composition from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), having Marisa Rezende as her Principal Advisor.
