Silvestre Revueltas' Music at the Mexican Cultural Institute

On May 22nd, the PostClassical Ensemble announced their 2013-2014 season with a special launch concert at the Mexican Cultural Institute. The musical director, Angel Gil Ordóñez, conducted a magnificent interpretation of Silvestre Revueltas' "Homenaje a Federico García Lorca."

This year, the PostClassical Ensemble's 10th anniversary season will feature music from Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, including the original score he composed for the celebrated Mexican film Redes (1936). On May 10th, 2014, the film will be screened, accompanied by a PCE performance of the score as part of a special multimedia experience. Alongside this unique concert, famed Mexican singer Eugenia León will interpret songs from the Mexican Revolution.

The Mexican Embassy in the United States, through their Cultural Institute, will collaborate with the PostClassical Ensemble to develop and advance cultural programming centered around this celebration of Silvestre Revueltas' work—events will include concerts, conferences, and expositions.
