    As part of HGOco’s Song of Houston Houston Grand Opera presents Past the Checkpoints, Friday, February 15, 2013  and Saturday, February 16, 2013, at Talento Bilingüe de Houston, 333 S Jensen Dr Houston, TX 77003.

    Join Opera to Go! at the premiere of Past the Checkpoints by composer David Hanlon and writer Joann Farías. The opera is based on the real-life experiences of David Moreno, a trumpeter in Mariachi Aztlán, an ensemble of the University of Texas Pan American.

    What does it mean to belong? David plays the trumpet and is a young American in every way but one. Through the power of music, he learns how to conquer fear and stand up for what he believes.
