Arts preview: Mozart & Montero at Southern Theatre

Gabriela Montero

Venezuelan pianist/composer Gabriela Montero is politically outspoken — both verbally and through her music. Her “Ex Patria” piano concerto is dedicated to the thousands in her home nation who have been murdered by the government. Even her upcoming ProMusica Chamber Orchestra appearance has something to say beyond the music, as she is featured in the orchestra's “Composer/Performer” series, a musician who is also an accomplished composer (ProMusica will world premiere a commissioned work) and a woman, at that.
