Cherie Hughes



An accomplished chamber musician, Cherie Hughes has performed throughout the United States and Mexico. She is a frequent collaborator with guitarist Roberto Limon, and as the Pacific Duo they have toured throughout Mexico and been featured in recital at the famed Bellas Artes Manuel Ponce Chamber Hall in Mexico City.

"I strongly believe that music is a holistic journey. You bring all that you are, all that you listen to, and all the performers you have worked with to your own artistic interpretations. Chamber music provides the perfect way to express and explore this."

As The Pacific Duo, the two are passionate advocates for new music, particularly of Mexican and Latin American composers; as well as performing standard works for voice and guitar by composers such as de Falla, Schubert, and Argento. In 2013, they were featured in recital at the Bellas Artes Manuel Ponce Chamber Hall in Mexico City. Past engagements for the duo include the world premier of Songs of the Poets by Bryan Townsend as part of the San Miguel de Allende International Guitar Festival, a concert tour sponsored by the Mexican government's Coordinacion Nacional de Musica y Opera to Mexico City, Guanajuato, and Salamanca; and appearances at the XI Festival de Guitarra Internacional del Noreste in Saltillo, Mexico. Twice,they were selected as Artists in Residence with the Seattle Jack Straw Cultural Center, which along with a grant from Seattle Pacific University helped to sponsor their recent recording ON MY PEOPLE. Released on the Origin Classical label, ON MY PEOPLE is a collection of Sephardic inspired songs by film composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Catalonian composer Matilda Salvador, and a new commissioned work by Samuel Zyman.
