New World Symphony Fellows invite you to a special concert of their own design. Celebrate the Mexican American experience through the Mayan creation story, which recounts God’s attempts in the formation of Man using clay, stone, wood and corn. El Maíz de mi Gente is an exploration of the evolution of Mexican music and visual art from the “Imagined Aztec Music” of Carlos Chávez to Federico Ibarra’s Second Symphony “Las antesalas del sueño”, and from ancient Mayan art to contemporary Mexican cinema.
El Maíz de mi Gente is a NWS BLUE project. Fellow-driven projects are sponsored in part by the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation and NWS’s Fund for New Ventures.
A Wallcast of this performance will be featured at the same time.
