Caminemos con Jesús: Incarnating Hispanic/Latinx Theology in Song

featuring Tony Alonso
Wednesday, April 19, 7 pm, and Madonna Della Strada Chapel, The University of Scranton

Join scholar and composer Tony Alonso for a theological and musical reflection on how Hispanic/Latinx theology shapes his own compositional craft through the prism of Caminemos con Jesús, his Latin Grammy-nominated album of sacred music that celebrates the beauty, passion, and vitality of Cuban music. Reflecting on the particularities of the theological, musical, stylistic, formal, and textual commitments that shaped the project, he will invite a deeper discernment of the relationship between theology, culture, and the arts in a range of pastoral contexts, with a particular focus on ministry in Hispanic/Latinx communities.
