The 2022-23 Harris Theater Presents season opens with a special program curated and presented in partnership with the National Museum of Mexican Art. This outdoor event on the HT Rooftop, overlooking Millennium Park, will celebrate the richness of Chicago’s Mexican-American arts scene and highlight voices of the next generation.
Co-headlining the event are Jesus Ramos, the versatile vocalist and Chicago native, and Sarah La Morena, the young Afro-Mexican singer who “embodies regional music that defies expectations” (Remezcla). Sarah La Morena will be accompanied by Chicago’s first all-women mariachi, Mariachi Sirenas. Reflecting the depth and diversity of talent in Chicago’s Mexican-American music scene, the lineup also features Jose Alfredo’s contemporary take on traditional Mexican music, the “tender voice”(Quip) of singer-songwriter Rosalba Valdez, and DJ CEDEÑO spinning throughout the evening.
Join us on Friday, August 26 at 6 p.m. as we celebrate the start of a new season with live music, dance, interactive activities, and a marketplace of vendors and makers. Audiences of all ages are welcome.
