St. Philip’s In The Hills Friends of Music presents the second of four concerts of their popular Summer Sizzler Series.
On Sunday, July 10, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. in the Church, internationally acclaimed Mariachi Luz de Luna under the direction of Ruben Martin Moreno will perform authentic mariachi music. Most known for collaborations in recording with the alternative indie-rock group Calexico, they have appeared in festivals and venues all over Europe, from the Royal and Barbican theatres in London — to Scandinavia — to Athens, Greece. Mariachi Luz de Luna has also appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show from Hollywood, with Jackson Browne, and rock legend Jon Bon Jovi.
Summer Sizzler Series concerts continue on Sundays, August 21 at 2 p.m. (Tucson Latin Jazz Nonet presenting Afro-Cuban-Caribbean flavored jazz, with co-directors Amilcar Guevara and Homero Cerón), and September 18 at 2 p.m. (Jason Carder Trio with Jeff Haskell on piano and Brice Winston on saxophone presenting jazz standards).
The suggested concert admission is $20 per person. The mission of Friends of Music is to enrich the musical experience of the parish and community through events such as concerts, outreach, education, scholarships, commissions, and support of special musical events.
