UPDATE, MAY 10: Here’s the performance!
The previous post:
Join us at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 9, for the online performance Versos y Besos with Las Colibrí, presented by Metro Art and the Autry Museum of the American West. This is a special Mother’s Day mariachi performance featuring much-loved classic songs of the genre and was filmed in Union Station’s historic Ticketing Hall.
The performance is inspired by composer and singer Manuela C. Garcia (1867-1931), who was born and raised downtown near what is now Union Station and whose whose archival materials are currently on display at The Autry as part of “What’s Her Story: Women in the Archives at the Autry Museum of the American West.” The program also includes a reading of an original poem by Amy Shimshon-Santo that reflects on Garcia’s life.
