La Santa Cecilia started their career by serenading passersby on the embellished corners of Downtown Los Angeles’ Olvera Street. They are a musical phenomenon which plays a blend of cumbia, bossa nova and boleros. They have won a Grammy®, toured from coast to coast, collaborated with Elvis Costello, appeared on Conan and most recently shared the stage with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones.
Singing about love, loss and disappointment, the band has become the voice of a new bicultural generation in the United States, fully immersed in modern music, but still close to their Latin American influences and Mexican heritage.
Note: The San Diego Symphony Orchestra does not appear on this program.
Please Note: the venue for this concert has changed. La Santa Cecilia will now perform at The Music Box (1337 India Street, San Diego, CA 92101) in Little Italy. Concert date and time remain the same. All previously purchased tickets for this concert will be honored at The Music Box. Will call tickets will be available at the box office of The Music Box.
