This package offer includes a ticket to Cuarteto Latinoamericano plus a curated talk about the magnificent Mexican art housed in JMU’s Madison Art Collection by director Ginny Soenksen with a Q&A and pre-concert reception.

With “vital, fresh, imaginative music and sensitive, brilliant performances,” (The Washington Post) Cuarteto Latinoamericano is one of the world’s foremost string quartets, and for 40 years, the leading proponent of Latin American music for the genre. The Cuarteto has toured five continents and won numerous awards, including two Latin Grammys, with three brothers—violinists Arón Bitrán and Saul Bitrán plus cellist Álvaro Bitrán—as well as violist Javier Montiel.

Mexico: A Musical Journey will explore the thematic intersections between music and art in Mexican history from the Aztecs to the modern day, with pieces by composers like Chávez, Ponce and Revueltas. Highlighting art—from the expansive murals of Rivera and Orozco to the surrealist paintings of Kahlo—this multimedia performance features commentary by Benjamín Juárez, professor of fine arts at Boston University and former general director of the CENART, Mexico’s national arts center. Don’t miss this entertaining evening!
