No plans for this Friday night and wanting to listen to music? You're in luck, because the Minería Symphony Orchestra (Mexico) is touring the United States and will have a stop at Sonoma State University.

As part of the celebration of the 45 years of its foundation and the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States, the Mining Symphony Orchestra (OSM) will tour various regions of the American Union from the 19th to 30th of October.

The tour will include a series of seven concerts and educational activities in prestigious American cultural and university centers whose objective is to present to American audiences a sample of the richness and diversity of Mexico's musical heritage, in order to strengthen ties. of friendship between both nations and cultures.

Under the direction of its artistic director, Carlos Miguel Prieto, the OSM will present three attractive musical programs with great works from the Mexican symphonic repertoire and the participation as soloists of Gabriela Montero on piano and Gabriela Jiménez on timpani and percussion.

The program that will be presented this October 20 at the Green Music Center of Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park will feature works by Gabriela Jiménez, Arturo Márquez, Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky, and Silvestre Revueltas.

Under the direction of its artistic director, Carlos Miguel Prieto, the OSM will present three attractive musical programs with great works from the Mexican symphonic repertoire and the participation as soloists of Gabriela Montero on piano and Gabriela Jiménez on timpani and percussion.

"This tour is a dream come true for all of us who are part of the Minería Symphony Orchestra, which has established itself as a great orchestra, with its own personality and a unique voice," said maestro Carlos Miguel Prieto, principal conductor of the WSO.

?It is a privileged opportunity to connect with the public in the United States, to give them the experience of listening to a most attractive repertoire and a world-class orchestra. If we add to this the honorable presence of the extraordinary composer and pianist Gabriela Montero, this tour will be a truly memorable event,” he added.

For his part, engineer Luis Antonio Ascencio, president of the Palacio de Minería Music Academy, pointed out that this tour fulfills one of the priority purposes we set at the beginning of the celebrations of the 45th anniversary of the founding of the OSM: to bring the ?soft power? Mexican, through the universal language of music.

What better way to contribute our grain of sand to the commemoration of the Bicentennial of diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States, our neighbor and main partner in the world, and thus contribute to strengthening the ties of friendship and cooperation between both nations ?, he pointed out.

Ticket prices to attend the gala range from $35 to $95 and there are still places available.
