Zinger’s “Great Mexican Songbook” will give an overview of the best of Mexican music, starting with such seminal composers as Manuel M. Ponce (“Estrellita”), Tata Nacho (“La borrachita”), and Agustín Lara (“Noche de ronda,” “Granada,”), as well as great female composers such as Consuelo Velázquez (“Bésame mucho”) and María Grever (“Júrame”).

Ranchera and huapango traditional styles of music will be represented by such classic favorites as “La malagueña,” “Mi virgen ranchera,” “Cucurrucucú paloma,” and “México lindo y querido.” Not forgetting the great popular composer Armando Manzanero, who will be represented with “Esta tarde vi llover” and “Somos novios.”
