Chicago • Deputy Director Mateo Mulcahy visited the set of WGN’s Spotlight Chicago on Thursday November 9th to discuss the 2023 season wrap up for the International Latino Cultural Center’s Chicago Latino Music Series. The series has grown in scope substantially since 2022 and has showcased over 30 performing Latino artists from all over Latin America.
“What a pleasure it was to speak with Sarah and Ji about the final three concerts of the year. It has been a banner year for ILCC’s programming. We look forward to what 2024 has in store for us, including the 40th anniversary of the Chicago Latino Film Festival as well all the exciting programming on tap,” said Mulcahy of the experience.
Mateo Mulcahy assumed the role of Deputy Director of the ILCC in January of 2022 and has grown the ILCC’s non-film programming since then with the addition of a brand new Chicago Latino Dance Festival in September and October.
The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago has produced the Chicago Latino Film Festival since 1985 and over the years has added multiple Pan-Latino cultural offerings in the form of film, performing arts in Dance and Theater and concerts as well as Film clubs held at the Instituto Cervantes in downtown Chicago.
In the video, Mulcahy explains some of the details about the final three concerts which include Sol y Canto, Paulo Padilha and Mono Blanco. Details of these events can be found on LatinoCulturalCenter.org; tickets are now available for all of these events.
The International Latino Cultural Center is headed up by Executive Director Pepe Vargas.
