The French Legation Museum is happy to continue the Evening Under the Oaks Fundraising Concert Series with Gina Chavez on Friday, April 27, 2012! Celebrated locally, Chavez has also received national attention, and National Public Radio hailed Chavez as one of eight “New Latin Artists at SXSW,” calling her music a “perfect mix of Latin, folk and blue grass.” Proceeds from the concert benefit the Museum, so come check out Gina and join us as we support local music and local history!
