Join us as ROCO’s Connections series continues January 22, with a Mexican-style Schubertiade salon performance in the glorious ballroom of Rienzi, and livestreamed at ROCO.org, Facebook, and YouTube!
Based upon the writings of Chicana author Sandra Cisneros—born in 1952, when the home was designed—the evening will feature the world premiere of two songs by Composer-In-Residence Derek Bermel, and his “A House of My Own”, from THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET/The Opera, plus works by Schubert and others, sung by mezzo-soprano Cecilia Duarte, joined by Ana María Otamendi, pianist, and Jesús Pacheco Mánuel, percussion.
Prior to the concert, enjoy a reception of light bites and refreshments, including an opportunity to experience a docent-led tour of Rienzi.
