Congratulations to Dafnis Prieto, 2011 MacArthur Fellow

This week the MacArthur Foundation announced their list of  this year’s Fellows,  selected for ” their creativity, originality, and potential to make important contributions in the future.”   Winners came from a variety of fields: clinical psychology, architecture, radio production, and poetry. Among the honored musicans is percussionist/composer Dafnis Prieto, who was a memorable part of our On LOCation concert series last year.
