Soprano Elizabeth Caballero to perform at St. Hugh

St. Hugh-Steinway Concert Series continues its 2016-17 Season on Friday, December 2 at 8 pm with a recital by the renown Cuban-American soprano, Elizabeth Caballero, with Roberto Berrocal, Basque concert pianist and Artistic Director of the Series. 

St. Hugh-Steinway Concert Series is entering its fifth season of vocal and instrumental concerts, presenting four concerts each year of both classical and popular music. Each concert is followed by a well-attended free wine & cheese reception in the adjoining hall to meet the artists.
