The “All Europe” festival of the San Miguel International Symphony will also feature a number of arrangements specially done for the orchestra, and many pieces never heard before in San Miguel.
The orchestra musicians are principals and concertmasters of some of the most outstanding Philharmonics of Mexico. They come to San Miguel periodically for love of our city and the passion and desire to give it what it deserves… a world class orchestra for years to come.
