SMU Meadows School of the Arts presents Joaquín Achúcarro Tribute Concert
World-renowned concert pianist and Joel Estes Tate Professor Joaquín Achúcarro recently celebrated 25 years of teaching at SMU Meadows School of the Arts. To honor him, Meadows is hosting a tribute concert.
The concert will feature performances by seven of his outstanding former SMU students, all of whom are winners of major competitions worldwide and perform internationally. The concert is curated by two of them, recording artists Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung, who are also Meadows’ new Johnson-Prothro Artists-in-Residence. The couple also serve as artistic directors of The Joaquín Achúcarro Foundation, founded in 2007 to showcase, educate and benefit the careers of pianists, while developing and maintaining the legacy of Joaquín Achúcarro in perpetuity.
