New Orleans-based musician Sarah Quintana will perform in the Templeman Gallery with compositions reflecting themes in the photography exhibition Tina Freeman: Lamentations. ABOUT SARAH QUINTANA Sarah Quintana is a singer-songwriter from New Orleans with a background rich in jazz, folk and popular music. She attended The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and received a heritage scholarship from the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, which allowed her to study in France. Quintana splits her time between the US and France, working alongside saxophonist Raphael Imbert and touring with French and American musicians. Quintana is a member of the Pantheatre with Linda Wise and Enrique Pardo, as serves as a hatha yoga instructor. In her latest studio recording, Miss River (Independent 2015), she collaborated with Mark Bingham to pay homage to the strength and fragility of Louisiana’s traditions and environment—primarily the wetlands. Quintana grew up in New Orleans where live music is ingrained many aspects of daily life. In 2010 she went from singing on the streets of Provence with a traveling circus, to the stages of the Jazz and Heritage Festival and Lincoln Center with swing band The New Orleans Moonshiners. In 2012, Quintana was awarded an artist residency at A Studio in the Woods where she composed music with water.
