Curated specifically for Spanish-speaking families during Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations, Black Moon Trio performs a program celebrating the art and culture of Mexico, Central America, and South America. ¡Festeje! features the music of Latine composers and includes the original commission, Barroqueada by three-time Grammy-nominated composer, Miguel del Aguila.
The program, which can be presented in both Spanish and English, explores music inspired by visual artists, a reimagining of Baroque musical forms with Latin flavor, and of course, the lively rhythms of traditional Latin song and dance.
