San Miguel de Allende, with its ever-growing musical culture, keeps opening its doors to such versatility. On this occasion we have the rare opportunity to listen to Guanajuato mezzosoprano Liliana Medrano performing flamenco and bolero pieces accompanied by Spanish guitar.
The singer, a Guanajuato native, studied music at the state university and has been an accomplished performer for several years, having sung stellar roles in operas played at such venues as Teatro Juarez and Bellas Artes in Mexico City.
Liliana has sung solo as well as being part of the chorus, sharing stages here and in Europe with performers such as Plácido Domingo. The versatility of this artist goes from singing opera to traditional Mexican music, tangos, boleros, flamenco, and more.
On this occasion Liliana will be performing with Ecos de Mina, an ensemble of Spanish guitars led by Nabor Velazques (also a graduate of the University of Guanajuato), and dancing will be the bailadora (Spanish dancer) Marianne Hernandez—all in the intimate setting of La Galeria (across from La Comer) on Thursday, March 23, at 7pm.
