Simplemente Lara

When: Sun., Sept. 6, 3 p.m. 2015

A decade ago, writer and performer José Rubén De León first experimented with an intimate tribute concept combining music with narrative. For one day only, De León revisits the fruits of this experiment with an anniversary performance of Simplemente Lara. The piece showcases the music of Mexico’s Golden Age through the life of Agustín Lara, a prolific composer who, though disfigured by a jilted lover, still managed to woo women with his repertoire of nearly 700 songs. The evening features father/son jazz duo George Prado and Dr. Aaron Ellington Prado, accompanied by a string quartet.

Price: $20
