Since 2001, Grupo Cultural Mixcoacalli has worked closely with the musical events in San Miguel de Allende, holding a variety of activities including educational workshops, specialized courses in construction of instruments, musical interpretation, the guitar and its interpreters, educational concerts and master classes. Among the group’s activities it also sponsors the International Guitar Festival SMA.
The group’s educational mission is accomplished through a violin-making workshop, from which the project called “Training young performers in classical and folk guitar” arose.
With support from various federal, state and municipal authorities, in 2002 Mixcoacalli conducted the first international guitar festival of San Miguel, repeating the festival in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and featuring guest musicians and specialists from more than five countries.
This group is composed of Sergio Huerta, who has a degree in violin making from Bellas Artes; Rigoberto Rodríguez, who has a degree in music education from the Autonomous University of Querétaro; and Mauricio Sánchez, renowned guitarist.
Bellas Artes invites the public to attend this concert of classical guitar music. Quintanilla has been recognized in several state, national and international competitions, wining the first place in the largest youth category in the fifth national competition for children and young guitarists in Salamanca in 2013; he also took first place in the junior category of the National Guitar Competition in 2013, in Paracho, Michoacán.
The musical program will feature major works written for guitar and covering different periods of history and music from the romantic period up to the 19th century.
