Intersection presented a family program which was guaranteed to broaden horizons and ignite the imaginations of all ages. Mariachi, was an afternoon of activities and music featuring thirteen Intersection musicians, Gabriela Fuentes and Mariachi students from Metro Schools and Manuel Delgado of Delgado Guitars. We explored the vibrancy of Mariachi folk traditions and the contemporary classical voices of Mexican composers Silvestre Revueltas and Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez, and we experienced the ways both cross and influence one another. Revueltas and Sanchez-Gutierrez represent different generations of Mexican composers both influenced by the voices that came before them. This show also featured the world premiere of a Forma, composed by Intersection’s composer ambassador, Christina Spinei. Her composition was created specifically for the collaboration of these artists. It was a perfect concert for adults and children alike, as we celebrated Mexican music and culture.
