Past lives: Singer Car­los Archuleta and pi­anist Nancy Cooper

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The names of the singer Felipe Del­gado (be­low) and the pi­anist Anna Maude Van Hoose may not ring a bell to­day, but in the 1930s they took their act on the road to au­di­ences across the South­west and reached an even broader lis­ten­er­ship through their ra­dio broad­casts of pop­u­lar songs in Span­ish. Bari­tone Car­los Archuleta and pi­anist Nancy Cooper have con­ducted re­search on these mu­si­cians and have de­vised a pro­gram ti­tled Som­bras del País (Shad­ows of the Coun­try), in which they dis­cuss these forgotten artists and per­form their reper­toire. The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Satur­day, June 10, at St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mexico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.), in which Del­gado and Van Hoose them­selves ap­peared back in the day. Tick­ets ($10-$20, cash or check only) can be had at the door. — James M. Keller
