Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra is scheduled to perform at the Brooklyn Museum this Sunday in celebration of the current exhibition Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving. The concert will center around Carlos Chávez’s ballet symphony Horse-Power, which premiered in 1928 at Aeolian Hall in New York City. In the audience at that time were Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, who had designed the show’s sets and costumes.
Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra’s performance will also feature works by some of Kahlo’s musical friends, including composers Silvestre Revueltas, Aaron Copland, and George Gershwin. The orchestra will perform Revueltas’s “Ventanas,” Copland’s “El Salon Mexico,” and Gershwin’s “Girl Crazy,” among other hits Kahlo loved.
Tickets to this one-of-a-kind performance are sure to sell out fast, so be sure to purchase yours through the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra here. Advance tickets are $10 for museum members and $20 for non-members, and day-of tickets are $25 at the door. This does not include entrance to the exhibit, which can be purchased separately.
