Hernando Merchand created Euterpe Magazine for the Performing Arts, Inc. 40 years ago in 1970. Euterpe magazine - production promotes Hispanic-American culture in all the arts. The 1st concert was at Carnegie Recital hall on May 3, 1970 with the legendary Puerto Rican pianist Genoveva de Artega. In that year they also started a series of 40 concerts at CAMI HALL. In the next forty years Euterpe Productions would have presentations on classical and folkloric music in such places as Carnegie Recital Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Town Hall, Florence Gould Hall, and in Universities such as Columbia, New York, Montclair State, Hostos and Bronx Community Colleges, Touro College and Boricua College. In addition Euterpe has had events in many churches, parks, libraries, schools and museums including the world famous Intrepid Museum.
Euterpe is dedicated to the promotion of grand concerts such as the ones given by Boricua College Chorus annually for the past 35 years.
During the 40 years of existence, Euterpe has helped publish, present and sell more than one hundred works by Hispanic-American writers.
Do to the great efforts of Euterpe and its founder Hernando Merchand over the past 40 years Hispanic-American artists have gained more recognition and exposure. Thanks to the press and friends of Euterpe Magazine over five thousand articles have been written in the best newspapers and magazines of New York, New Jersey, Miami, Mexico, Colombia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Spain. These Articles have highlighted the artistic wealth and extraordinary work of Euterpe on behalf of its artists.
Euterpe Magazine and Hernando Merchand also have the honor of belonging to the prestigious Asociacion De Critico De Espectaculos (Association of Theatrical Critics), who during the past 42 years has enriched New York City with their monumental A.C.E. Awards given annually on Broadway to the finest local and international artists.
The dedication and hard work of Hernando Merchand for the past 40 years is a labor of love. He is admired and loved by all who know him. I would like to Wish Hernando Merchand and Euterpe Magazine Congratulations! On this 40th Anniversary and I hope them and all the artists who have contributed and or will contribute in the future many more years of great concerts, beautiful art and fine literature and poetry. Great men are forged by hard work and vision and to this respect Hernando Mechand is one of the best.
