The renowned Sonora-based Cardenchado Choir is slated to perform a one-night-only concert at Mexico’s National Center for the Arts (Cenart), a subsidiary of the Culture Secretariat,  on Thursday, June 9.

The concert will consist of a combination of improvisations and contemporary arrangements to some of the choir’s traditional repertoire.

Under the artistic direction of Juan Pablo Villa, María Emilia Martínez and Leika
Mochán, the Acardenchado Choir will offer a robust musical tour of an urban, industrial landscape, contrasted by the stillness of natural spaces.

The 19-member group has performed in numerous venues across Mexico, as well as in Canada.

The concert will be held at Cenart’s Blas Galindo Auditorium on Thursday, June 9, at 8 p.m.
