As every year, this musical event takes place in the canyon of El Charco del Ingenio, an amazing natural sculpted space carved by nature in stone over time immemorial. Since its inception 16 years ago, the concert in the canyon has been a collective celebration of life, with an ever-growing and enthusiastic audience and always with the presentation of artists and groups of very high quality and various musical expressions.Spring equinox concert Sat, Mar 22, 5:30pm El Charco del Ingenio Members 130 pesos Non-members 150 pesos Students and teachers 100 pesos Please purchase your tickets in advance
This year we will celebrate this great feast of the Earth in the Botanical Garden with a concert of winds, by the ensemble Mexican Brass / Metales M5, with pieces by contemporary composers (Kevin McKee, Maurice Green, Paul Dukas, Samuel Barber, Ken Bichel and Michael Kamen and E. Humperdinck) in original combination with baroque composers (Handel, Mozart, Bach and Gabrieli).
Mexican Brass ensemble has impressed a wide audience of all ages and musical tastes, playing hundreds of concerts with baroque music, contemporary, opera, musical comedy, blues, folk, film and music from around the world. In their presentations, all five musicians, who have classical training, mix the familiar with the unexpected—with surprising and always entertaining virtuosity. Their chamber music skills and their charisma combined with the audience interaction converts the concert into a captivating magic theater show. With its warm sound and joy, this ensemble has achieved recognition and respect of audiences and critics in different countries. Information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
