Both were featured on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series in 2019.

Magos Herrera’s 2009 album Distancia and her 2018 album Dreamers are both Grammy-nominated.

Brooklyn Rider was invited to play at SXSW in 2010.

Joined by the bold and expressive singer Magos Herrera, Brooklyn Rider celebrates the power of beauty as a political act. Discover a new world of classical music as tradition meets invention on the Centennial Hall stage.

Magos Herrera is a dazzling jazz singer-songwriter, producer, and educator declared as “One of the greatest contemporary interpreters of song” (The Latin Jazz Network). With a sultry voice and an unparalleled presence in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene, she is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and her singular bold style. Magos joins Brooklyn Rider together with Mathias Kunzli on percussion to take you on a musical journey exploring the artistry of Violeta Parra, Federico Garcia Lorca, Gilberto Gil, Joao Gilberto, Octavio Paz, and others who dared to dream under repressive regimes.

Hailed as “the future of chamber music” (Strings), the veteran string quartet Brooklyn Rider presents an eclectic repertoire that continues to draw rave reviews from classical, world, and rock critics alike. NPR credits Brooklyn Rider with “recreating the 300-year-old form of string quartet as a vital and creative 21st-century ensemble.”

Experience a gripping performance from Grammy-nominated artists who have transcended brutality through their work, work which represents love for humanity, democracy, and the inspiration to dream. Featuring evocative arrangements by Jaques Morelenbaum, Diego Schissi, Gonzalo Grau, Guillermo Klein, and Colin Jacobsen, we invite you to dream with us.
