BYU recital Sept. 17 celebrates Mexican independence

The Brigham Young University School of Music will ring in the celebration of Mexican independence with a free recital Friday, Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. The concert will be repeated in Salt Lake City Friday, Sept. 24, at the Assembly Hall on Temple Square at 7 p.m.

Faculty, students and alumni will showcase Mexican music and selections from well-known Mexican composers. Other music will come from Mexico’s nationalistic period (1880-1950).

After the plot for Mexican independence was discovered, one of leaders, Father Miguel Hidalgo, hurried to his church and rang the parish bells to warn and gather others. Today, the Mexican president celebrates the revolution by ringing bells every year.

“This is a great opportunity to honor our sister nation to the south,” said J. Arden Hopkin, a BYU professor who specializes in vocal music from Spain and Latin America. “You will recognize some of the selections, others will be new, but all of them will remind you of Mexico.”

For more information, contact J. Arden Hopkin at (801) 422-3157.
