Neighbor Notes: Modern Mexican Chamber Music

Sounds Modern, directed by new music guru Elizabeth McNutt, presents “Neighbor Notes” in conjunction with the Modern’s exhibition México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990. Mexico’s popular musics are widely appreciated in the US; however, Mexico’s lively contemporary classical music scene is relatively unknown here—classical performers and audiences are more familiar with music from across the oceans than across the border. Sounds Modern presents a cross-section of trends in modern Mexican concert music, including established masters like Mario Lavista, as well as new works from the younger generation. Admission is free.
