For the inaugural weekend of Beyond Grave, we have commissioned Opera singer, Akindele Bankole, avant-garde harpist Sabine Silver, and bilingual folk band, “Los Brownies.” Each artist has crafted a site-specific performance that will have you swaying in your seat, looking upon the cemetery with new eyes. Exploring their personal connections to the history found within the cemetery grounds, these works will connect us all to the people – past and present – of Santa Cruz County.

Support for the MAH's performing arts programming is provided by the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation.
