Join the MAH's new series of multidisciplinary performances at Evergreen Cemetery as artists connect Santa Cruz County's past with the present moment.

Artists and performers introduce new, site-specific work for this series of intimate performances. Inspired by the stories and landscape of the historic Evergreen Cemetery, dancers, spoken word artists, and musicians reimagine the space with new commissions.

April 10th - 11th | Musical Performances

For the inaugural weekend of Beyond Grave, we have commissioned opera singer, Akindele Bankole, avant-garde harpist Sabine Silver, and bilingual folk band, “Los Brownies.” Each artist has crafted a site-specific performance that will have you swaying in your seat, looking upon the cemetery with new eyes. Exploring their personal connections to the history found within the cemetery grounds, these works will connect us all to the people – past and present – of Santa Cruz County.
