Lincoln Center on Songs by an Immigrant”

Heralded by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda as “the next big thing” in musical theater, the latest work by Mexican composer-director Jaime Lozano, Songs by an Immigrant, is a show about diversity and integration. Following a series of sold-out downtown theater performances, the work takes its next step forward with a concert staging as part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook. Lozano portrays with candor the challenges of the first- and second-generation middle-class U.S. immigrant experience: finding a new home, learning a new language, dealing with discrimination, pursuing the American dream, and searching for ways to build bridges instead of walls. Lozano, both the evening's conductor and creator, will be joined onstage by his Familia, an all-star Latinx lineup of Broadway and Off-Broadway performers. 

Jaime Lozano is a musical theatre composer who is a native of Monterrey, Mexico, and earned his BFA in Music and Composition from the School of Music at the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León. He is the recipient of a full scholarship to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he has the distinction of being the first Mexican to be accepted to and earn an MFA from the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. Jaime is one of the five artists selected for the 2020-2022 Joe’s Pub Working Group residency and one of the artists selected as part of The Civilians R&D Group 2020-2021.
