In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, MECA, Multi-Cultural Education and Counseling through the Arts, put together a program that juxtaposes both older and modern European classical compositions with new, contemporary dance pieces. We welcomed choreographer Armando Silva, and dancer Jarine Carvalho to the studio as well as pianist Alejandro Vela, who performed some of the music live for us. http://www.meca-houston.org/ Audio here.
