MARCH IS MUSIC / Building on a commitment to present artists of the highest caliber in The Bronx, this multi-genre series showcases the range and vitality of today’s varied musical cultures. Curated by seasoned Latinx artists, series concerts and dialogues draw links between music, dance, and popular culture, highlight ruptures and continuities in form and content, and make room for intercultural fusion and exchange.
BRONX PIANO SUNDAYS / During the month of March, this subseries shines a spotlight on one of Pregones/PRTT’s prized possessions: a Steinway & Sons grand piano acquired with support from donors and Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz, Jr. Stellar pianists are invited to perform works of all styles and eras on this magnificent concert hall instrument. Showtime is 3PM and admission is FREE. Donations for Earthquake Relief are welcome!
Puerto Rico Earthquake Relief for Artists / In light of damages and sustained duress resulting from seismic activity in the island, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater has reignited a new round of emergency micro-grants to affected artists in Puerto Rico starting January 2020. The initiative is modeled on the success of our theater’s prior Hurricane María Relief Drive for Artists, which provided no-strings assistance to artist households on the island in 2017-2018. Tax-deductible donations are welcome at www.pregonesprtt.org, by phone at 718-585-1202, or by mail c/o Pregones/PRTT.
