"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully , more devotedly than ever before." - Leonard Bernstein 

The first concert will happen on November 22nd, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Mariachi Real de Mexico by fusing traditional Mexican sounds with classical virtuosos. The second takes place on November 28th at 8PM and benefits  Redes USA—a program promoting social change by teaching vocal and instrumental music to Latino youth in Baja California, Mexico City and New York. 
Come and enjoy an evening of classical Music with a Mexican Twist!  

Our concert on November 22nd, elevates Mariachi Music to new heights in the classical world with a kind of fusion never seen before at Carnegie Hall.

Our second concert will happen on November 28th at 8PM featuring Redes USA— a program for social change that has taught vocal and instrumental music to Latino youth in Baja California, Mexico City and New York  for over 6 years, improving the lives of young musicians and their families. This concert gives these talented children with limited resources, hailing  mostly from Tijuana, the opportunity to perform at one of the most prestigious venues in the world.  The children will be  joined by  internationally renowned pianists Abdiel Vasquez and Guillermo Vaisman, soprano Monica Abrego, guitarist Nilko Andreas and the Saxon Quartet from Mexico City.  The concert you will witness ranges from traditional Mexican music to Beethoven!

“Amazonas” is the name of a series of concerts that are presented around the world featuring the Azlo Orchestra, guests and soloists. The main purpose of these concerts is to focus attention on the increasing level of environmental damage that we have been causing to our planet We believe that this situation demands a strong response from the present generation and in particular from the artistic community. Less known is that composers from many periods in the past have taken their inspiration from Nature and the ancestral power of the Amazon forest, as well as providing an opportunity to young composers to write new works for the series.
