Mexican ensemble to perform clarinet concert in Belize

‘From Yucatan to the World’, a two-night clarinet concert series opens on Saturday evening at the Institute of Mexico in Belize City and will feature the music of the five-member youth ensemble Paax utia’al iik.  The group of performers was formed in May 2012 and the idea was to collectively produce chamber music with different wind instruments.  The material available for performance includes Baroque, Vivaldi, Bach, Handel and Mozart, to name a few.  The presentations, according to Marcelino Miranda, of the Mexican Embassy, are part of the calendar of events for 2014 and are free of cost to the public.

“The Embassy of Mexico is very excited about hosting a group of young musicians who are very talented.  They are coming all the way from Merida.  They are going to perform these two concerts and I think it’s a very good opportunity for people who are interested in music or who want to come closer to an instrument, the clarinet that sometimes we don’t have a chance to listen to often.  I think this is going to be a good opportunity to take children and all the family to an event where they are going to perform music, classical music but also more contemporary and popular pieces.  And we want to invite everybody because we are also going to include some surprises in this event, in this concert and so everybody’s welcome to come.”

“How important is it to promote Mexican music and Mexican artists, in terms of this ongoing series of cultural exchanges whereby artists from that country come to Belize to perform?”

“I think a part of the education of young children, young people and children is music.  Therefore, the Embassy of Mexico has been promoting music not only from Mexican musicians but also to perform music that is international music, classic music and from all kinds of genres.  So that is important and this is part of the cultural calendar, the cultural program of the embassy.  These young musicians they have performed not only in Mexico but also in the U.S. and I think that we are pleased that now they are coming to Belize so it’s going to be a very good opportunity and part of the education of young people and children.”


The second concert will be held on Sunday at the Embassy of Mexico in Belmopan.
