Mario Paci conducting

The conductor, composer, and pianist, Mario Paci, lived the last 25 years of his life in Shanghai after being a touring pianist in Europe and Asia. He composed 8 songs in a late Romantic style, which are in manuscript at Stanford Libraries Special Collections. The songs will be performed for the first time in over 100 years by soprano Christine Abraham and pianist Laura Dahl at Toyon Hall for the opening of an exhibit on Paci on January 23 at 4 pm.
