Recognized as a “Luminary” in 2011 by the Mexican Consulate in SF and 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 20 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 three older adult choirs in the Mission District, Coro de Cámara, teaching Mariachi at the SFUSD Mariachi Program, flute, voice, and sight-reading. Also speaks Spanish.
