ofrendas (offerings) in honor of Dia de los Muertos. This year, the program – a collaboration between ROCO, Lawndale, Inprint, Musiqa and the Houston Hispanic Forum – will include five short, original works from Houston composer Marcus Maroney as well as four prose and poetry texts from Inprint authors, all set against Lawndale’s display of retablos (devotional paintings and illustrations created in honor of the Day of the Dead).
