ART EVENT “Neighborhood Community Day” at Rothko Chapel

SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 2024 at 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM: Experience an enriching afternoon filled with art, music, poetry, and family-friendly activities at Rothko Chapel to celebrate the dynamic spirit of the neighborhood. Join us for “Maria’s Magical Music Adventure,” a captivating production directed by Tim Fried-Fiori and based on Emma Kent Wine’s beloved children’s book. Follow the escapades of Maria, a young Latina, and her hip-hop aficionado brother Carlos as they journey through time to 17th century Italy.

Guided by the enchanting violinist Allegra, who serves as Maria’s musical fairy godmother, they encounter the renowned composer Antonio Vivaldi in the midst of creating his masterpiece, “The Four Seasons.” With the assistance of Vivaldi and Allegra’s magical string quartet, Maria and Carlos discover the transformative power of music and the significance of finding one’s voice.

A talented ensemble of actors and musicians infuse this narrative with charm and vitality, blending engaging storytelling with live classical music to deliver an entertaining and uplifting experience suitable for both children and adults. Presented bilingually, this interactive performance is co-produced by @expresstheatre1 and @arslyricahouston.As a special treat, all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of “Maria’s Magical Music Adventure.”
