Recital: Delfina Cheb Terrab '24 DMA, Contemporary Musical Arts

NEC: Brown Hall | Directions

290 Huntington Ave.
Boston, MA
United States

In the course of completing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at New England Conservatory, performance majors present not just one, but three full-length recitals, for which they also write program notes.  It's an opportunity to observe multiple facets of an emerging artist.

Delfina Cheb Terrab ‘24 DMA studies Contemporary Musical Arts with Dominique Eade and Anthony Coleman and is the recipient of the Kimball P. Stickney Memorial Scholarship and the Salmon-Garner-Anderson Scholarship.

All compositions are by Delfina Cheb Terrab.

This is an in-person event with a private stream available to the NEC community here:


Program note

For my second recital I decided to sing a collection of songs that I wrote over the last couple of years. The main thread that connects them all is that they illustrate the time I have spent alone with my guitar trying to synthesize the different compositions, poems, artworks, landscapes, individuals, trees, and colors that I have been coexisting with in Boston. An important aspect of my songwriting has been to be in touch with the “lunfardo” or slang version of Spanish we speak in Buenos Aires. By including these words on my songs, I hope to strengthen my bond with Boston and with my city of birth by writing about Boston in my first language.
