“Los Valientes” Brings Celebration of Latin Culture to Simpson

“Los Valientes (The Courageous Ones)” celebrates the lives of three heroic Latinos through musical and theatre performances.

And it’s coming to Simpson!

The production will be performed at 8 p.m. Oct. 8 in Great Hall. It is free, and the public is invited.

“Los Valientes” is a live music theatre work for a singing actor and onstage musical trio consisting of cello, piano and percussion. The music, ranging from traditional Latino folk and popular songs sung in Spanish, recognizes the work of Mexican painter Diego Rivera, martyred Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, and Mexican-American outlaw Joaquin Murrieta, who some say the Zorro character was based on.
