Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

Cerro Coso honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries during National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Check out all the great activities taking place:


Tres Vidas by Core Ensemble

A chamber music theatre work for singing actress and trio (cello, piano, and percussion) based on the lives of three legendary Latin American Women: Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya, and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni.

The show features a wide stylistic range of music, including popular and folk songs of Mexico, El Salvador, and Argentina, vocal and instrumental tangos by Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla, and new music written especially for the Core Ensemble by Osvaldo Golijov, Orlando Garcia, Pablo Ortiz, and Manuel DeMurga.
