Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a live, nationally syndicated radio broadcast of music by three generations of Mexico’s most exciting composers.  The concert is an evening of New York premieres including pieces by Gabriela Ortiz, Felipe Perez Santiago, Ana Lara, Hilda Paredes and Mexico’s most celebrated living composer Mario Lavista.

These composers have been performed by leading ensembles like the New York Philharmonic, Kronos Quartet, the LA Philharmonic and the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Mexico but these pieces have never before been heard in New York.

Hosted by Seth Boustead, Relevant Tones is the world’s only weekly syndicated radio program featuring the music of living composers.  With composers, men and women, from nearly every country in the world writing new classical music, we believe that the golden era for our art form is happening now.  Through syndication and our podcast, Relevant Tones is heard by approximately 250,000 people every week.

This broadcast will also be heard live on WKCR in New York. The evening is sponsored in part by the Consulate General of Mexico in New York and is a co-production of Unison Media, the WFMT Radio Network and Access Contemporary Music.
