Hispanic Heritage Month
During the last four years Amigos has collaborated with Richmond Community Schools for September/October Hispanic Heritage Month by inviting an award winning Latino artist to perform for between 800 – 1,500 students through Richmond. Past artists have included award-winning children’s authors, and more recently a celebrated musical group Sones de México from Chicago. On September 8th, the group will do two interactive performances of their Fiesta Mexicana for K-8 students at Civic Hall Performing Arts Center.
