Rothko Chapel  



Overview

What does home mean to you? Is it where you were born or where you will be laid to rest? Is it a food, a style of music, or a scent in the air?


Performed against the backdrop of Mark Rothko's majestic canvases, this unique concert explores themes of home, family and life, and the difficulties faced by families divided by borders.   

Featured performers include vocalists Cecilia Duarte and Vanessa Cerda-Alonzo, original cast members of the world's first Mariachi Opera Cruzar la Cara de la Luna/To Cross the Face of the Moon. Guitarist José Pecina and pianists Ana María Otamendi and John Cornelius complete the roster of musicians for these two events.

The program includes music from Cruzar la Cara de la Luna, classical Spanish songs and traditional Mariachi in Spanish and English. This collaborative event integrates the Rothko Chapel's longstanding commitment to human rights and intercultural dialogue with HGOco's mission to build community through stories told with words and music. 

To purchase tickets, please visit rothkochapel.org or call 713-660-1407.
