Music of the Americas Live from the Met and Online

Join us live in New York for an event featuring singers from the Met and online for En Casa and the video of Paquito D'Rivera's concert in July 2023.

This week, En Casa includes videos by Luz Pérez and the Cuarteto de Guitarras de Costa Rica. On Tuesday, we host a live event in New York exploring Daniel Catán's opera Florencia en el Amazonas, which is in the middle of its run at the Met, and we share the video of Paquito D'Rivera's clarinet fest on our stage in July 2023. 

En Casa: Luz Pérez

Monday, November 27, 10 am

Luz Pérez is a singer and composer from Argentina's north. Her music is always about love, relationships, and nature, based on the belief that sound can transform reality. She is working on her album Canciones terrestres, and touring with her project "Vibra Terrestre." 

She sent us two pieces. Today we share "Creadoras de tiempos," a vidala included in Canciones terrestres, in an arrangement for Tibetan bowls and voice. This song invites us to ask ourselves about our past and future. 

Florencia en el Amazonas

Tuesday, November 28

Florencia en el Amazonas, written in 1996 by Mexican composer Daniel Catán (1949–2011), is the first Latin American opera presented at The Metropolitan Opera House. In celebration of its historic run—it premiered on November 16 and closes on December 14—we host a conversation between Andrea Puentes Catán and João MacDowell, as well as a performance by Gabriella Reyes, Mario Chang, and Nelson Ebo, with Brad Moore on piano.
