Pianist Polly Ferman has performed Latin American music on some of the most prestigious stages in the world, including New York’s Carnegie Hall. At 8 p.m. Oct. 6 she will bring her international repertoire to the E. Desmond and Mary Ann Lee Theater at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. Doors will open at 7:10 p.m. for a pre-show discussion. Tickets are $10-$20.

Ferman, who was born in Uruguay, is considered an essential part of the Latin American music scene today. Her numerous recordings constitute one of the world’s most extensive collections of Latin American repertoire, including habaneras, milongas and tangos.

The performance is sponsored by International Studies and Programs at UMSL, Department of Music at UMSL and Women in the Arts at UMSL, along with the support of the Regional Arts Commission.
