Merida Events: Rock Concert and Trova

This Week… starting April 16, 2012

Municipal Fiestas This Week

Yucatan Living Teya Fiesta: Last Week in April
This fiesta is in honor of Saint Bernabe, patron saint of the people. This is a tiny municipality that is near, but not on the center of the coast of Yucatan. It is bordered on the north by Cansahcab. For anyone who wants to live near the beach, but avoid the constant sand, places like Teya are well worth checking out.

Yucatan Living Teabo Fiesta: April 28 through May 3Teabo Fiesta in Yucatan
This fiesta is in honor of Santa Cruz. The artisans here make typical clothing for both men and women. They also do embroidery by both hand and machine. If you are looking for a cotton hammock, you’ll find it in Teabo, along with excellent leatherwork. Teabo is located just north of Tekax and to the east of Mani and Akil.

Yucatan Living Yaxcaba Fiesta: 2012: April 28 – 29
If you are looking for the Land of the Maya – you just found it. This is a great agricultural area and well worth visiting.

Yucatan Living Program 10: Orquesta Sinfonica de Yucatan Mari Eli Sosa with the Yucatan Symphonic Orchestra
With an entirely American program, the symphony takes us to the worlds of movies and Broadway. Cuban Overture by Gershwin was originally titled Rumba, and was inspired by the Cuban dances the composer heard in the clubs and streets of Havana in 1932. John Williams described to Leroy Anderson as "one of the great American masters of light orchestra music" composed the Piano Concerto, strongly influenced by the music of Gershwin. The program will include the Yucatan pianist Eli Maria Sosa. Also on the bill, Outdoor Overture is a popular piece with optimistic temper and enjoys a definite appreciation among young American audiences. Symphonic Dances from West Side Story was a musical innovation in its time for the dances with Latin rhythms, jazz riffs and love songs of great melodic beauty, as well as the theme that recalls the history of Romeo and Juliet.
