[Postponed] Stop, Look and Listen!: Will Cruz and Quattro

In conjunction with the exhibition Allora & Calzadilla: Specters of Noon, the Menil Collection and Da Camera co-present an outdoor concert with Houston-based musicians Will Cruz and Quattro. Fusing jazz with the Puerto Rican cuatro guitar and syncopated rhythms of the Caribbean, Quattro creates a unique sound with an infectious energy.


  • Albert Graulao, cuatro and violin
  • Feliz Yoan Alonso, bass
  • Jorge Lebron, drums
  • Will Cruz, Latin Percussion

This concert is part of the Menil and Da Camera’s ongoing series, Stop, Look and Listen!, a family-friendly series of free chamber music and jazz concerts presented at the Menil Collection. These museum concerts often feature unconventional, interactive concert formats and fun, adventurous musical selections. Programs are designed to celebrate specific artworks and exhibitions on display in the museum.

Join us after the concert for a book launch for the Specters of Noon exhibition catalogue, and an outdoor film screening of Allora & Calzadilla films.
