Celebrates Mexico’s Bicentennial

Santa Cecilia Orchestra, an orchestra with a special mission to serve the Latino community, will celebrate these two momentous events with a concert featuring works from Mexico’s greatest composers.

Blas Galindo’s Sones de Mariachi and Jose Pablo Moncayo’s Huapango are also on the program.
