RUNNING TIME

Approx. 1 hr, with no intermission

 


It's a Christmas concert, 
with a twist! 

Mexico in the 17th century was a time of great cultural and musical diversity — which produced music infused with festive indigenous rhythms and dances. Experience a holiday event unlike any other — with music from the cathedrals of Puebla and Mexico City. 

This concert is made possible in part by the Houston Arts Alliance, the Houston Endowment and the Albert & Ethel Herzstein Charitable Foundation.
