The Opening Gala of the MEX AM Festival 2017 will be an extraordinary music concert performed by the Jalisco Philharmonic Orchestra and the Grammy Award Percussion Ensemble Tambuco.
Evoking the colors and rhythms of Latin America, it’s an evening of vibrant music by 20th Century Mexican composers performed by one of Mexico’s most exciting orchestras. The program also features Copland’s iconic musical portrait of a dance hall in Mexico City, El Salón Mexico and Gershwin’s Catfish Row Suite from Porgy and Bess with sensuous music inspired by spirituals, jazz, blues, and Broadway.
