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.
