In collaboration with Latino Community Fund, Casa Latina, and Orquesta Northwest, Voces Latinas will promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in Seattle by forming a cohort of mentors and participants to conduct community-oriented projects from September 2019 through May 2020 in conjunction with music and cultural events that will attract diverse audiences by featuring Latinx guest musicians and composers and celebrating traditional and historical Latino events – such as the conquest of Montezuma and Mexico's Independence Day. At these events, offered without charge, cohort members will present educational information about project activities so as to promote civic engagement by Latinx community members in attendance. Cohort mentors and participants will conduct activities involving democratic processes and civic engagement to include voter registration support and interviews of Latino community volunteers and elected officials. They will present their experiences to the public at a culminating event.
Running from September 2019 through May 2020, Orquesta Northwest’s current concert season is titled “Voces Latinas.” View upcoming events on the calendar.
