Bloomington, Indiana, is a special city for musicians—visitor or resident, foreign or domestic, famous or little-known. It also happens to be a city with a large university and a large school of music, a meeting place for all kinds of performers, educators, and researchers. This post is part of a photo series that looks at the many people in Bloomington who call themselves a musician.

Soprano Yuriria Rodríguez is a versatile musician. She is classically trained, yet explores other genres, as well, focusing primarily on an array of Latin American popular styles.

And she is talented, let me tell you.

Here’s Yuriria in Carlos Mejía Godoy‘s song, “Cristo de Palacagüina,” with the I.U. ensemble El Taller (arranged by Guido Sanchez, the ensemble’s director).

Here’s Yuriria in the traditional Nicaraguan Christmas carol, “Niño precioso,” which I arranged in a baroque style for voice and harpsichord.
