Yes, Marlene, wasn't the Dia de la Musica great? (It actually was 2 dias, started Friday night but I was at the special performance by the Symphony in the Cathedral then, and attended only on Saturday night). For those who weren't there, sound stages were set up in 5 locations between Plazuela Machado and Olas Altas beach, and one hour performances took place at each one from about 7PM to 1AM. Every kind of music imaginable, jazz, classical, mariachi, reggae, banda sinaloense, hip hop, you name it, and all free! I missed the reggae at the Art Museum stage, which I would have loved, because my friends weren't interested in leaving the general area of the Plazuela. The Coro (chorus) Angela Peralta was wonderful as always, and so were the mariachis. I caught the banda on my way home, didn't stay but I like banda from a distance and it is enjoyable a block or 2 away!
There has been so much music going on here lately, almost as much this month as our regular music season October through December. Last night I went to a performance of the comic opera Don Pasquale at the Teatro. Great! Just one reason I love Maz. Dee
