Cristina Pato is a vibrant and virtuosic force of nature who has spent her musical career thwarting expectations and winning over the hearts of audiences around the world with her unequivocal mastery of the Galician bagpipe. When she performed with her quartet at the Chan Centre two seasons ago, The Vancouver Sun hailed the concert as “nothing short of a revelation,” citing it as one of the best shows of the year and describing her playing as “joyous, expansive, exciting… [and] never less than amazing.”
Also a classical pianist, writer and educator, Pato skillfully moves between jazz, classical and folk styles in wide-ranging collaborations with ensembles like the New York Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony to artists like Arturo O’Farrill and Paquito D’Rivera. She is an active composer and regularly tours the world with Silkroad, founded by Yo-Yo Ma. For this special Chan Centre digital concert, Pato will perform from her home in the Galicia region of Spain.
