World-class concert for a great cause
By Robin Loving Rowland
Well, of course I love music. Who doesn’t love music? But, to get the likes of me, the perpetual motion machine, to sit down and listen? Well, that takes more than music. That takes world-class entertainment, and that’s what’s coming to town in November when Metales M5 takes to the stage at Teatro Angela Peralta with its joyous shenanigans and fine music.
Concert to support School for Deaf Children
Sat, Nov 23, 7pm
Teatro Ángela Peralta
Mesones at Hernández Macías
Heralded throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and South America, this brass quintet is hot, according to New York recording artist and composer Ken Bichel of ProMusica SMA, who said, “M5 has been a consistent hit with our cultured and discerning audiences. A delightful blend of fine music, wry humor, great staging and a winning rapport with the audience makes M5 one of the hottest brass groups I have ever heard.”
“M5 is the best thing to come out of Mexico since tequila! The musicians have fun on stage and do uncommon things, being contagious with their joy and happiness … M5’s special ingredients are: changing costumes, illumination for a special touch on stage and … certain elements like candles…,” according to Heraldo Aguascalientes.
And, all of this great music, good humor, and world-class entertainment will happen to expose kids to magical music and for a good cause — to raise funds for San Miguel’s Escuela de Educacion Especial (School for Deaf Children). There will be three free concerts for school-aged kids and one concert for adults. The adult concert will be the world premier of “Spheres,” a musical composition by Ken Bichel.
Tickets for the adult concert November 23 at 7pm will be available for 100-300 pesos at the Teatro Ángela Peralta ticket office, both Solutions locations and La Conexion at Aldama 3 beginning October 15. However, you may order your tickets in advance from John Doherty and he will deliver them to you the first week of November.
Will this wacky and wonderful brass quintet entertain with show tunes, Bach, or a historic medley? Will their children’s shows introduce the garden hose as an instrument, Baroque music, symphony, Bach, or modern compositions? Come discover M5’s fresh and funny tones in magical music.
