Orchestra 2001 will present a 10-piece ensemble playing exciting music by three of Mexico’s most well-known 20th- and 21st-century classical composers: Carlos Chávez, Silvestre Revueltas, and Francisco Cortés-Álvarez. The artistic influences for this music range from pre-Spanish, Aztec culture to mariachi to the artwork done by present-day Mexican muralists on their side of the existing border walls that separate the United States and Mexico.

This event is presented by the City's Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy as part of Performances in Public Spaces, a summer series of FREE cultural performances in parks and plazas across Philadelphia neighborhoods. From May through October, the annual series brings arts and culture experiences to local outdoor spaces. All Performances in Public Spaces are free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged but not required. To find more free Performances in Public Spaces events, visit creativephl.org/pps.
