Magos Herrera with Brooklyn Rider: Dreamers

6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show


Celebrating the power of beauty as a political act, Magos Herrera teams up with Brooklyn Rider to explore the artistry of poets and dissidents who dared to dream under repressive regimes.

Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), veteran string quartet Brooklyn Rider have drawn rave reviews from rock and classical critics alike. Magos Herrera is a legend in her home country of Mexico, where she’s won critical and popular acclaim for her singular bold style and eloquent vocal improvisations.

NPR says that Herrera and Brooklyn Rider’s collaborative new project “is drop-dead gorgeous . . . It’s playful. It’s serious. It’s jazzy. Some tracks defy description.” Delving deep into work imbued with a love of humanity, a belief in possibility, and a demand for justice, Herrera and Brooklyn Rider deploy their extraordinary technique in the service of wonder, lifting audiences into the orbits of these extraordinary songs.

Dreamers is not only a work of art, . . . it is a work of love as well.” — Sounds and Colors
