“The concert opens with the famous ‘Danzon No. 2’ that will give way to the fun and jazzy ‘Clarinet Concerto’. Subsequently ‘Sensemayá’, one of the most representative works of nationalism, then ‘De aquí a la Veleta’ and finally the ‘Huapango’ of Moncayo, ” said Miguel Escobedo Novelo (Figarosy Director).
At a press conference, at “Jose Peon Contreras” Theatre, the head of the Ministry of Culture and Arts (Sedeculta), Roger Metri Duarte, accompanied by the president of the Board of OSY, Margarita Molina Zaldivar, and the Directors Juan Carlos Lomónaco and Miguel Escobedo Novelo (Figarosy Director), presented the program.
Metri Duarte emphasized that combining efforts between the State Government and Figarosy allows positioning the company as an artistic reference in the country, having more theatrical venues suitable for projects of larger quality and talent development.
“With the renovations made to the infrastructure of ‘Peon Contreras’ theater, it will provide the necessary conditions for at least 15 years for various events that occur in it,” the state official said.
The director, Juan Carlos Lomónaco, said that with each season OSY takes a step forward in its consolidation to provide greater musical concerts and be a window of opportunity for young talents in the country.
In his speech, clarinetist Mora Vazquez said that as a result of the joint efforts, the Yucatan Orchestra is considered one of the most renowned throughout Mexico.
“It is a national reference because it has achieved musical and artistic strength. Orchestras that have such programs have great success, concluded the musician.
