Music inspired by Mexican folklore on the LA Philharmonic, 11/2 @ 8pm

Mexican Rattlesnake art

Superb encircling rattlesnake wood sculpture by artist Manuel Cruz.

According to Mexican folklore, a brilliantly colored rattlesnake lives beneath the surface of the earth, waiting for the moment when humankind finds peace so it can return to the surface. Maestro Gustavo Dudamel conducts music inspired by this folklore in Francisco Cortés-Álvarez La Serpiente de Colores.
