Esperanza Arts Center presents the streamed premiere of a new live audio recording featuring Orchestra 2001's iConexiones! performance from Cinco de Mayo 2019 at Teatro Esperanza spotlighting the music of Mexican composers. This program includes the world premiere of Transcending Walls by Francisco Cortés-Álvarez.
