The Latin American Music Center (LAMC) celebrates the life and music of its founding director, Juan Orrego-Salas, on his 100th birthday, with an exhibit that highlights his impact as a composer, educator, scholar, and advocate of Latin American music. The exhibit includes materials from the Juan Orrego-Salas Legacy Collection, donated by the composer in 2011 as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Center.
The Collection consists of Orrego-Salas’s musical works and ephemera such as letters, photographs, concert programs, and writings by and about Orrego-Salas. It includes sketches, manuscript scores, and published scores by the composer. A variety of program notes, concert programs, reviews, and articles, as well as Orrego-Salas’s scrapbooks comprise part of the Collection. Other items include personal and professional correspondence to and from Orrego-Salas, scholarly writings by and about Orrego-Salas, papers and compositions written by his students, as well as photographs and artwork, all of which provide insight into the life and music of the composer.
This online exhibit complements a physical exhibit on display at the Indiana University William and Gayle Cook Music Library from January 18-February 26, 2019.
Beginning in the autumn of 2018, the Indiana University Latin American Music Center participated in Mexico Remixed, a festival presented by the Arts & Humanities Council at Indiana University. Like previous Global Arts & Humanities Festivals, Mexico Remixed was designed to interact with the art, culture, and history of Mexico through a series of exhibits, performances, films, and other events. The LAMC participated in events throughout the festival year with exhibits that highlighted Mexico’s rich musical culture.
