Performance

AGO Live: Karla Garcia and Jeimmi Carrasco

Fridays, June 17, July 22, 7 pm and 8 pm
Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

AGO Live returns to Walker Court with live music performances from local Latinx, Filipinx and Spanish artists, inspired by the AGO exhibition Faith and Fortune: Art Across the Global Spanish Empire. Presented partnership with Small World Music, this summer series features a breadth of music from percussion, flute and vocals to contemporary cross-cultural vibrations, including performances by Tocani, and Beny Esguerra and New Tradition. Limited seating is available. 

Originally from Castro, a town on the Chilean island of Chiloé, Karla García is Toronto-based classically trained guitarist and teacher. As a performer, García has played a wide variety of music including contemporary, folk, fado, rock, classical, Celtic, Latin American, and more, and has participated in many guitar festivals and concerts across North and South America. In 2010 she was named “Best Performer” at the César Cortinas Guitar Contest (Atlántida, Uruguay), and one of the most important Chilean flamenco guitarists, Carlos Ledermann, dedicated a composition, “Suite Emocional,” to her. García has also taught master classes at Festival Entrecuerdas, one of the largest guitar festivals in South America, and has shared the stage with prestigious guitarists from Norway, Italy, Portugal and Canada.

Praised by the El Diario de Concepción for her “warm and soulful sound,” Jeimmi Carrasco has moved audiences through her performances as a soloist, chamber artist and orchestral musician.  For three years she has been recipient of the Foundation Ibanez Atkinson for her artistic contribution to her home country, Chile. As the founder of the Adlibitum
ensemble, which blends classical music and Latin music, Ms. Carrasco has performed in fifteen different cities in Chile. She completed her Bachelor’s degree and Artist Diploma at The Glenn Gould School of Music in the studio of Mayumi Seiler.
