MERIDA – At the Merida International Airport, the atmosphere of Christmas began to be felt, with the lighting of its tree and the concert given by the Chamber Orchestra of Mérida on Wednesday December 6.
Héctor Navarrete Muñoz, director of regional airports in Asur, accompanied by more officials from the air terminal, was present at the traditional lighting ceremony. The decoration includes waterfalls and seasonal figures inside and outside the airport.
At the end of that ceremony, the concert began, with a repertoire that included the songs “Cantique de Noel”, by Adolph Adams, “Merry Christmas Darling”, by Richard Carpenter and Frank Pooler, also “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, “The Christmas song” and “A Christmas Festival”, by different authors.
The presentation concluded with the Carols Suite, a compilation of old songs compiled by Miguel Bernal Jiménez and arranged by Leroy Anderson.
The lights and music were the delight of hundreds of people, many of them passengers waiting for their flights or who arrived at the terminal, as well as the public that attended the fifth concert of the Chamber Orchestra of Mérida, at the airport.
The Asur regional airports director and Óscar Carrillo Maldonado, administrator of the Mérida airport, gave recognition to the Orchestra.
Héctor Navarrete thanked the City Council of Mérida, its Culture Department and the conductor of the Orchestra for making this concert possible.
The director said that the airport of Mérida is the first in Mexico and possibly the Americas to offer these concerts, as part of their activities, to bring the arts closer. This activity was also presented at the International Airports Council.
