Roco Musical & Literary Ofrenda says
ROCO celebrates the Day of the Dead holiday with a collaboration between organizations in complementary artistic disciplines.

Commissioned by the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, new compositions written by Musiqa stand for traditional Mexican ofrendas that honor the memories of ancestors. Poetry readings by local Inprint authors are woven into the musical program that’s performed amid an exhibition of retablos (altarpieces created as devotional art). The Houston Hispanic Forum will offer an opportunity for guests to practice their Spanish in a social setting as part of "Espanol y Arte."

The event is part of Lawndale Art Center’s 28th Annual Día de los Muertos festivities, held Oct. 19 through Nov. 7.

Musiqa composers include:
* Pierre Jalbert
* Anthony Brandt
* Marcus Maroney
* Jefferson Todd Frazier
* Joel Love

Free to attend.
