It is with great sadness that the Latin American Music Center announces the passing of its founder, the noted Chilean composer and scholar Juan Orrego-Salas. His passion, dedication and kindness will continue to serve as a source of inspiration for those of us who have the privilege to continue his work. Maestro Orrego-Salas’ legacy will not be forgotten.

Please click here or on the banner above to read the obituary notice written by Venezuelan composer Ricardo Lorenz, a former student Maestro Orrego-Salas and a close friend of the Orrego family.

As we remember the Orrego-Salas, we encourage you to visit our online exhibit, created in celebration of the maestro's 100th birthday: Juan Orrego-Salas "My Life in Music: A Century of Relationships through Musical Notes"

Also of interest is the 2014 article "Juan Orrego-Salas: I've Written All I Have to Write" and accompanying video (below) by Frank Oteri.

We invite you to learn more about the life and works of Juan Orrego-Salas with our online research guide to his materials, available here
