Aida Cuevas Preconcert Panel Discussion
Peligrosa: Women Musicians Breaking Ground

This year, Aida Cuevas became the first female Mexican ranchera singer to win a Grammy Award for Best Regional Mexican Music Album. Cuevas has fearlessly broken taboos and barriers by performing mariachi music, a genre long dominated by men. Learn how other women have disrupted and thereby elevated their artistic fields through this preconcert panel discussion featuring local women artists who work in historically male-dominated disciplines.

Seating is limited, and advance registration is highly recommended.

Access to the preconcert panel discussion is free with a concert ticket. Please be sure to have your concert ticket with you when checking in. Seats will be available for pre-registrants only until 6:20pm, at which point remaining seats will be released to those in the standby line.
