Lawndale Art Center is pleased to present its 30th Annual Día de los Muertos events October 27 – November 2, 2017, a celebration of the art, music and folklife of Mexico.

ROCO celebrates the Mexican “Day of the Dead” with the annual Musical & Literary Ofrenda at Lawndale Art Center Monday, October 30.

A five-way collaboration between ROCO, LawndaleInprintMusiqa, and the Houston Hispanic Forum, this year’s performance also features the premiere of five original, three-minute musical “ofrendas” (offerings) by Houston composer Marcus Maroney, which are woven amongst four original prose and poetry texts by Inprint authors.

Additionally, Houston-based baritone, Timothy Jones, joins a trio of ROCO musicians performing on oboe, viola, and cello.

The performance takes place against a backdrop of “retablos” (paintings and illustrations representing the Day of the Dead), and is followed by refreshments and a beginner Spanish lesson through Español y arte.
