Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States

7 pm—Pre-concert string instrument-making
7:30 pm—Concert

On the wings of melody, rhythm, and poetry, ¡Música del Corazón! concerts, featuring new groups and different traditions each year, tell us as much about our past as about our future. The concerts honor the contributions of John Donald Robb, Sr., former dean of UNM’s College of Fine Arts and a recognized music pioneer, and are dedicated in memory of his son, John Donald Robb, Jr., a driving force in the development of the UNM John Donald Robb Musical Trust. The sixth annual John D. Robb, Jr. concert and 30th anniversary celebration of the Robb Trust features Frank McCulloch, Cipriano Vigil, Bayou Seco, and Lone Piñon. MC’d by Dr. Enrique Lamadrid, a nationally recognized folklorist and musicologist, the event also includes the presentation of the 2019 Robb Award for Excellence in Music of the Southwest.

The New Mexico Musical Heritage Project offers a pre-concert string instrument-making demonstration and performances by UNM students.

Free public event

Film: ¡COLORES! The Musical Adventures of John Donald Robb in New Mexico

7 pm

The late John Donald Robb loved and composed all kinds of music, but his passion for the songs of everyday folk is what he is remembered for most. Roaming the countryside of the Southwest during the 40s and 50s, Robb recorded and transcribed over 3,000 Hispano folk songs, the largest collection of its time. This documentary celebrates the life of this adventurous musician and the modern day ethnomusicologists who continue to record and archive New Mexico’s disappearing folk music traditions. Presented in partnership with New Mexico PBS and the John Donald Robb Musical Trust as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.

Free ticketed event; tickets available one hour before show

There Must Be Other Names for the River

November 16

7 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

516 ARTS, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and UNM Art & Ecology Program artists Marisa Demarco, Dylan McLaughlin, and Jessica Zeglin present There Must Be Other Names for the River. This composition for six singers is based on streamflow data from the river known today as the Rio Grande. Each singer channels the river, representing a point where flows were observed and recorded. Arranged in the shape of the water body within the performance space, the singers’ voices change in intensity with the flows and distort over time as human interference is felt along the length of the river. After embodying past decades, the singers project possible futures for the voice of the river and the bodies through which its waters flow. The artists say, “The Rio Grande is itself a living being who has experiences over time including birth, growth, and possibly death…. By listening and embodying, can we change our relationships with the river and see beyond its uses to humans? Can we hear the river as more than a resource?” The original sound art performance is presented in conjunction with Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, an exhibition currently on view at 516 ARTS.

Free public event
