NEA Heritage Fellow Concert: Las Tesoros de San Antonio, a concert by Las Tesoros de San Antonio, a group of elder women performers who teamed up to preserve Mexican and bicultural musical expressions through their singing and storytelling. Through the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center in San Antonio, Janet "Perla Tapatia" Cortez, Beatriz "La Paloma del Norte" Llamas, Blanquita "Blanca Rosa" Rodriguez, and Rita "La Calandria" Vidaurri teamed up as the group Las Tesoros in the 2000s. Although Janet Cortez and Rita Vidaurri passed away in recent years, Llamas and Rodriguez continue to perform and maintain the legacy of the group. All four women grew up in the West Side of San Antonio, Texas and each singer, with her personal style and grace, forms part of this unique ensemble that represents the important sound of the Mexico/Texas border. They are inspired by and connected to many other important Tejana singers, including the great Lydia Mendoza (1982 NEA National Heritage Fellow) and the internationally renowned Eva Garza.

unPlanned: Laura Jasinski, the Charles River is synonymous with Boston and Cambridge. From the earliest days of European arrival in the 1620s, the river has played a fundamental role in the history of those two cities and of the broader region. Originally a tidal wetland, the first miles of the river have changed character significantly over time. For much of the past 150 years, the river was treated as an industrial sewer that flushed urban waste out to the ocean. It’s only in recent decades that the health of the river has taken precedence. The Charles River Conservancy was founded to support the river and Laura Jasinski, the executive director, talks to unPlanned about all the work they have been doing to activate this historic resource and help steward its public spaces. Produced by Sam Seidel.
