Wind Ensemble concert features music from and written about Mexico

The Willamette University Wind Ensemble will be joined by Jesse Leyva, an expert on Mexican and Latino classical music, for a concert on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at 7:30 p.m. in Hudson Hall within Rogers Music Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature music both from and written about Mexico, including H. Owen Reed's wind-band classic "La Fiesta Mexicana," chamber music by Silvestre Revueltas, and works by Carlos Chávez.

The performance will examine how the actual classical music of Mexico is often quite different from the stereotypical depictions by many American composers.
