This event has passed.

Free for Members


Nashville songwriters Marta Albarracin, Brenda Coulter, Marcela Pinilla Eicher, Rachel Rodriguez, and Rosa Rodriguez will perform original songs with their mentor, hit songwriter Pat Alger. In 2021, Alger became a mentor with the Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce’s partner program Entrepreneur Latina Leaders of America (ELLA). The twelve-month program culminated with a celebration at Nashville’s Plaza Mariachi in August 2022, but the group—with participants representing Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Spain—has continued performing together, including a round late last year at Nashville’s Bowery Vault. A Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member, Alger wrote the Garth Brooks hits “That Summer,” “The Thunder Rolls,” “Unanswered Prayers,” and “What She’s Doing Now.” He also penned “Like We Never Had a Broken Heart” (Trisha Yearwood), “Small Town Saturday Night” (Hal Ketchum), and songs for Mickey Gilley, Dolly Parton, Brenda Lee, and the Everly Brothers. Ford Theater. Included with Museum admission. Program ticket required. Free to Museum members.
