In celebration of Mexican Independence Day, CEPROSOUND performs music inspired by the art of Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910–1950. “Hear the Revolution” features workby Mexican composers who worked during the time period covered in the exhibition.

Under the direction of CEPROMUSIC artistic director José Luis Castillo, the program includes pieces by Carlos Chávez, Manuel Enríquez, Rodolfo Halffter, and Silvestre Revueltas, as well as an orchestration of revolutionary corridos (ballads).
