Hailed as “seriously funny” and “whimsically brazen,” Mnozil Brass is one of the world’s premiere brass ensembles, blending original compositions with classical favorites, jazz standards, and popular hits. Along with virtuosic playing, the repertoire is presented with the group’s iconic humor and wit in scenes so clever that they would be worthy of Monty Python.

In society, poets and songwriters play the essential role of dreamers, opening up avenues of hope for others. Despite the oppressive regimes which prevailed throughout much of Latin America and Spain in the twentieth century, what persevered from the dreamers was an unending love for beauty and humanity. Mexican-born songstress Magos Herrera and the omnivorous string quartet Brooklyn Rider join forces for an unforgettable musical journey, reinterpreting classics of the era from Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, and Spain, and celebrating such luminaries as Octavio Paz, Federico García Lorca, and Rubén Darío.
