Meet the musical group making new waves Nov. 22 at 2 p.m.
The Museum of South Texas History (“MOSTHistory”), a museum chronicling the heritage of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico, introduces The CacheTones for a distinctive musical Sunday Speaker Series experience Nov. 22 at 2 p.m.
The CacheTones is a vibrant duo that performs a new genre of music, “Rhythm & Bliss”, in several community events in the region. Before departing to Nicaragua in Feb. 2016, band members Rich Heart and Ernesto Vergara will perform an exclusive show in the Grand Lobby at the Museum of South Texas History. Experience a new wave of salsa, reggae and cumbia with the support of keyboards, congas and rhythm instruments such as the cowbell.
The duo will be available for comments and questions pertaining to the music genre, which reflects their experiences, both physically and musically, in the Rio Grande Valley. Bring family and friends to enjoy an afternoon of spirited music that celebrates the joys of living. Sunday Speaker Series is included in the fee for regular admission. FRIENDS of the Museum are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship.
This program is made possible with generous support from the Carmen C. Guerra Endowment. Mrs. Guerra was deeply committed to supporting educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley. This named endowment was created at the museum by her family to honor her memory and to continue her commitment to providing opportunities for education to the community.
About Museum of South Texas History
The Museum of South Texas History is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. It is located in downtown Edinburg at 200 North Closner Boulevard on the Hidalgo County Courthouse square. Hours of operation are from 1–5 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday. Founded in 1967 as the Hidalgo County Historical Museum in the 1910 Hidalgo County Jail, the museum has grown over the decades through a series of expansions to occupy a full city block. In 2003 following the completion of a 22,500 square foot expansion, the museum was renamed the Museum of South Texas History to better reflect its regional scope. Today, the museum preserves and presents the borderland heritage of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico through its permanent collection and the Margaret H. McAllen Memorial Archives and exhibits spanning prehistory through the 20th century.
