Sold out "El Son de la Misión

El Son de la Mision"El Son de la Misión," a musical suite commissioned by CMC, brought down the house with two sold-out shows at Brava Theater Center in March. Four generations of artists filled the stage taking the audience on a musical journey that rejoiced in the powerful cultural history of the Mission. The evening evoked musical memories for the audience. They sang along and cheered on the performers, completely captivated by the music.

Excellent was great...Brought back great memories of many good times...
- Angela L., audience member

Special thanks to the amazing creative collaborators John Calloway and Carlos Barón and of course to CMC's Program Director and Producer extraordinaire Sylvia Sherman. Look out for a possible encore performance at Brava this fall!
