As the spirits return during the tradition of Día de los Muertos, we celebrate our past in this annual concert dedicated to the holiday. Join us as we recreate some of our audience’s favorite memories from past Día de los Muertos concerts and build brand new memories together. This concert features some of Mexico and Latin America’s most celebrated composers, evoking and highlighting the music of their regions, alongside an entrancing and chilling performance of Mozart’s Requiem, performed with a 70-voice choir and a Sinfonietta twist (of course).
