Martha Rodríguez-Salazar

(2000) Director of CMC’s Older Adult Choirs and Community of Voices Choirs, Latin Music Vocal Workshop, Camp CMC. Recognized as a “Luminary” in 2011 by the Mexican Consulate in SF and most recently as “Excelencia Latina” by LAM and Mundo Fox, singer, flutist, conductor and producer Martha Rodríguez-Salazar has been bringing Latin American folk, classical and contemporary music to the Bay Area for more than 15 years.

A core member of the Bernal Hill Players, she has been involved in the commissioning and performing vibrant, rhythmic, energetic new work by Bay Area and Mexican composers that challenge commonly-held assumptions about new music. Born in Mexico and classically-trained at Mills College as a concert flutist and opera singer, she currently works with the San Francisco Symphony as the curator for its annual Día de los Muertos celebration; and with the Community Music Center directing four older adult choirs in the Mission District, teaching flute, voice, piano, sight-reading, Latin Vocal Workshop, summer camp, Coro de Camara, and directing and co- producing the annual Mexican musical “La Posarela”. Also speaks Spanish.
