John LatiniSINGER/SONGWRITER
John Latini
John Latini is a musical chameleon. Whether he’s singing an old standard from the jazz era of the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s, belting out the blues, or quoting from the classic rock repertoire, his voice and music transforms with the song, carrying audiences away with him. Latini is also an award-winning songwriter, so you’re bound to hear his clever lyrics in one or two of his original tunes. Always upbeat and animated, his magic draws all ages into the show.

It provides a performance outlet for the many faculty, staff, students, and volunteers in life science disciplines at the university who have previous musical training but few opportunities to play. For its spring concert in the celebrated Hill Auditorium, the LSO will perform Act I of Puccini’s La Bohème, Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, and Gershwin’s "An American in Paris".
