The month of November has Luciana out on tour as soloist on a very exciting new project, The Blue Hour. A Far Cry, a self-conducted, Grammy nominated string orchestra, has commissioned five young composers for a collaborative project. This is an evening length song-cycle setting of a poem by Carolyn Forché called On Earth. The five composers are Rachel Grimes, Angélica Négron, Caroline Shaw, Sarah Kirkland Snider and Shara Nova.

Luciana is busy writing and putting together music for her new project - Word Strings - with guitarist Chico Pinheiro, and bassist Scott Colley. These artists play their instruments with the utmost dedication to sound, tone, and expression, while always thinking as composers and arrangers in the moment. Luciana has set poetry of Emily Dickinson, Leonard Cohen, Pablo Neruda, e. e. cummings, Elizabeth Bishop, and will perform some of this music as well as Brazilian music and Jazz with a focus on what is poetic.
