La Peña-Ayer, Hoy y P’Alante Rehearsal


Lichi Fuentes

It’s so inspiring to see the work of composer, Wayne Wallace and librettist Aya de Leon and all the great musicians of the La Peña International Orchestra come together to create this living, breathing performance about our community’s history! I hope folks can come see the performance on June 13th!

The second rehearsal of La Peña-Ayer, Hoy, y P’alante last Friday was so exciting. DJ Wonway Posibul put excerpts of community member interviews onto vinyl to integrate into Aya de Leon’s libretto. Those stories combined with the music and spoken word added an incredible layer to this piece. It was also great to hear Lichi’s new song, and Wayne’s music come to life. Congratulations La Peña International Orchestra!
