HONORING OUR ANCESTORS  focuses on musical compositions of life, loss, transitions, enlightenment, and memory. Projected messages and images honoring loved ones that have passed and are connected to the market will be shown throughout the performance. The main goal for this event is to open a space of collective grieving as well as using music to bring light and honor to our loved ones as a way of elevating their spirit.  

This performance is part of Orchestra 2001's EMERGING MARKETS concert series, supported in large part by the William Penn Foundation.

The HONORING OUR ANCESTORS performances are co-presented by OUR MARKET.

“OUR MARKET” is a community-centered, multi-layered, multi-year public art project created and led by local artist Michelle Angela Ortiz that began in April 2019. The project is focused on supporting the immigrant vendors, business owners, and neighbors that work and reside in the 9th Street Market. The project invests in the 9th Street Market by offering creative community strategies to tackle the issues of gentrification, racism, displacement, and erasure.
