San Francisco Symphony Dia de Los Muertos Community Concert
The Dia de Los Muertos Community Concert has now become an annual tradition at the San Francisco Symphony. The concert will be conducted by SFS Resident Conductor Donato Cabrera with guest soloist Mexican tenor David Lomelí performing “Besáme Mucho”, “Granada” and other beloved Latin American favorites. Tickets are selling fast! Get yours, too!
This family friendly event includes other activities in the Davies Hall lobbies before the concert. See performances by Ensables Ballet Folclorico de San Francisco, San Francisco’s longest running folkloric dance troupe. Take in a special art piece created for the occasion- a 25–foot installation of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent Aztec god, made of colorful chilies by Bay Area artist Victoria Canby. Interact with actors from Circulo Cultural, a theater company that performs Spanish language productions. In the spirit of Dia de los Muertos, there will be sugar skull painting, pan de muerto, and Mexican hot chocolate! ¡Que rico!
