ANNOUNCING MÉXICO EN EL CORAZÓN AT BOETTCHER CONCERT HALL
Free concert showcases traditional mariachi and folklore dance from Mexico
July 10, 2019 – Denver, CO – The Mexican Cultural Center in partnership with Alliance Sports Association, Museo de las Americas, and the Colorado Symphony Association are thrilled to present the “México en el Corazón”, a beautiful and exciting, free community concert showcasing the traditional dance and music from Mexico. The concert is an initiative of North American Institute for Mexican Advancement (NAIMA) and would not be made possible without all the partners. For the past 34 years the Guadalajara Folkloric Ballet has served as the ambassador of Mexico in spreading its traditions all over the world. This year along with Mariachi Juvenil Colotlán they will put on an event that will help the community connect and learn about the Mexican traditions. The event will be on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., at Boettcher Concert Hall.
Join us for an interactive performance that will bring the heart and soul of Mexico directly to you in Colorado! This show presents authentic Mexican culture, song, dance and folklore to the stage this August in Boettcher Concert Hall performed by México en el Corazón – which features a thirteen piece band and over a dozen dancers with singers as well!
The dissemination of these artistic expressions allows for a greater approach to Mexico’s traditions and generates greater identification among Mexican migrants, while reinforcing community recognition of the great contribution and presence Mexican art and culture in the United States. “It is important to bring these types of performances to Colorado to showcase the uniqueness of the Mexican Culture, but also expose our Colorado community about its richness and diversity” said Ana Valles, Interim Executive Director of the Mexican Cultural Center
