Voice professor Mili Bermejo blends Latin folk music, jazz improvisation, and socially aware lyrics. Critics have described her sound as “part poetry-folk, part Sarah Vaughn sophistication” (Boston Magazine). Tonight, she will perform "Love Songs of the Americas," a program featuring romantic songs from a variety of lyrical traditions and cultures, with faculty cellist Eugene Freisen and the student World String Orchestra.http://www.milibermejo.com
