Encore! Summer Concert Series
Tune in to relive a selection of great concerts featuring CMC faculty, students, and partners. Each Monday we’ll feature an encore concert from the CMC Concert Hall archives which will be available to view on-demand on our website. Concerts can be viewed for one week, and will be available on our YouTube Channel.
August 3–9 is a special edition of the concert series. CMC in partnership with Carnaval San Francisco presents Part 1 “El Son de la Misión” – Juntos Contra el Hambre. Carnaval San Francisco will be simultaneously broadcasting Part 1 of El Son de la Misión” live on Facebook and running a virtual telethon to raise money for its food distribution program in the Mission District for people economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. On Monday, August 3 at 5:00pm, watch the show and the virtual telethon to raise money for food relief for Mission District families. Visit the Mission Food Hub to tune in.
Program information for “El Son de la Misión” can be found here.
“El Son de la Misión: A Musical Journey from 1960–Present” features the work of Artistic Director, Lead Composer, and Arranger John Calloway, Co-Theatrical Director Script Writer and Lyricist Carlos Barón, and a talented cast of musicians and actors.
Commissioned and originally produced by Community Music Center in 2016, “El Son de la Misión” examines the history of the Mission District through music, featuring original songs that reflect pivotal social and artistic movements in the neighborhood’s past with artists of the present.
CMC dedicates this performance to the superb work of Carnaval SF who is raising money to distribute food and assistance to individuals and families impacted by the pandemic which has proven to have significantly more devastating consequences on the Latino community from both a health and economic point of view.
