Event Description

Join us at the Capitol Hill Library to celebrate Children's Day. Observed and celebrated annually around the world on varying days, Children's day or Día de Los Niños as it's known throughout Latin America is a day to celebrate and honor children and their importance in today's society. Children will have the opportunity to have their portraits taken, make a craft, and listen to educator and musician Francisco Trevino as he takes you through a magical trip through traditional children's music from Mexico and Central America with Francisco J. Treviño. He will share his love for music and his Mexican culture. Enjoy the music from artists like Crí Crí, Suni Paz, and others as well as some original songs. Bring your children and share with them the music grandparents and parents grew up with. No registration is needed!


The performance by Francisco Trevino is part of Being Oklahoma: Exploring the Threads that Define Us, a project of the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Metropolitan Library System.


About Francisco Treviño


Francisco J. Treviño was born in Monterrey, México, and immigrated with his family to Tulsa, Oklahoma at the age of 11, and has lived here ever since. 

An artist at heart, Francisco self-taught himself to play guitar at the age of 13, in order to play his favorite classic rock music. A singer and songwriter, his Mexican heritage has strongly influenced his style, particularly after the age of 21, when he learned huapangos and other Mexican styles from local musicians. He used this influence in his second LP of children’s music, recorded in Veracruz, México in 1995, with the help of local traditional folk artists and musicians. 

Francisco has always been an avid supporter of the arts, particularly those that showcase Hispanic culture. With this in mind he was part of the Arts and Humanities Council’s Artist in the Schools program for 15 years, teaching Mexican culture and music in Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma classrooms. His commitment to showcasing Hispanic culture and music to the community.

Francisco's focuses on traditional children's songs from Mexico and Latin American countries.
