BONECOS DE OLINDA (San Francisco Symphony)
On November 4, the San Francisco Symphony presents its 16th annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration at Davies Symphony Hall. The event features a concert program of traditional and contemporary Latin American music conducted by Miguel Harth-Bedoya and featuring vocalist Edna Vázquez, along with dancers from Casa Círculo Cultural and performers from Canción de Obsidiana. As part of the California Festival, Harth-Bedoya will conduct Clarice Assad’s 2019 composition, Bonecos de Olinda, which was inspired by “bonecos,” the large papier-mâché puppets created for the city of Olinda in Brazil’s annual Carnival parades. The program also includes works by Arturo Márquez, Alfonso Leng, Silvestre Revueltas, and Arturo Rodríguez. The concert is preceded by a festive array of family-friendly activities and followed by the ¡Fiesta! Día de los Muertos fundraiser.
