Mexico, A Musical Journey: art and music

Tuesday, October 24 - 7:30 PM



Tuesday Musical’s 2023-24 Akron Concert Series opens Tuesday, October 24, 7:30 p.m. at EJ Thomas Performing Arts Hall with “Mexico, A Musical Journey.” 


Latin Grammy winner Cuarteto Latinoamericano and art scholar Benjamin Juarez of Boston University will explore connections in Mexican visual art, history and culture through the music of six iconic composers alongside a narrated multimedia presentation of paintings by such artists as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. 


Continuing a 10-year collaboration between Tuesday Musical and Akron Public Schools art teacher Patrick Dougherty, audience members can also see paintings inspired by the concert and created by students from Akron Public Schools’ Firestone Community Learning Center. 


Art teacher Patrick Dougherty explains that the students chose to paint the Mexican artists in black and white and use color to depict some of their paintings. “This was a particularly gratifying experience for my students as well as for me,” notes Dougherty. “While I knew of the work of Rivera, Kahlo, and Leonara Carrington, I was not aware before of the diversity and beauty of so much of Mexican art.”


Available at on-line and 330-761-3460, individual-concert tickets start at $19. Full-season subscriptions start at $90 for all six concerts in the series. Pick-Four concert packages start at $65 and Pick-Three concert packages start at $49.


Tuesday Musical also provides free tickets for all students as well as bus funding for student groups. Student tickets are available on concert night at the EJ Ticket Office and bus funding information is available at 330-761-3460.
