Young musicians, singers dispense heartwarming seasonal fare

At the Ajijic Auditorio on Thursday, December 19 there was great excitement and standing room only for some, even though additional chairs were brought in. People turned out in droves for the CREM (Centro Regional de Estudios Musicales) annual “Concierto de Invierno,” featuring the Orquesta Víctor Manuel Medeles and the Orquesta Infantil y Coro del CREM.

Two young members of CREM, Mayra Camarena and Justin Flores, introduced the concert with impressive delivery and composure, speaking Spanish and English respectively.

Conducted by Emmanuel Medeles throughout, the program opened with a beautiful performance of Handel’s “Sonata for Flute in F major” by Esteban Oetling on recorder, accompanied by Hans Aull on piano, followed by three pieces from a lively and versatile string quartet comprised of three violins and a cello.

Then CREM children’s choir was joined by that of the University of Guadalajara Music School for an enjoyable rendition of Geisler’s canon “La Orquesta.”
