“Hope Through Music Across Borders”

SUPPORT
“Music knows no borders, talented youth musicians from Ciudad Juárez to Tucson”

The University of Arizona presents Orquesta Sinfónica Esperanza Azteca Revolución UACJ, a
youth orchestra from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. The free-admission performance will take place in
the Fred Fox School of Music’s Crowder Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 7, 2019. This
event is sponsored by the University of Arizona Executive Office of the President, the College of
Fine Arts Fred Fox School of Music, UA Global, the Consulate of Mexico in Tucson and USMC
Strategic Alliance.

The concert, titled “Hope Through Music Across Borders,” will feature a festive and delightful
program. The 60-member ensemble will perform music by Mexican composers including José
Pablo Moncayo, Juventino Rosas, Arturo Márquez and Manuel Enríquez, as well as traditional
popular selections, including “Jarabe Tapatío,” “Cielito Lindo,” “Juan Colorado,” “México Lindo
y Querido” and more. This top national award winning youth orchestra performs under the baton
of conductor Jové García.

This orchestra is a social program for human and arts development, coordinated by the Azteca
Foundation in Mexico. The project was developed with the main goal of creating orchestras
across all of Mexico to attract vulnerable and underprivileged populations and introduce them to
the world of music as a pathway for creating better opportunities. In total, Esperanza Azteca
sponsors 62 symphony orchestras and choruses throughout Mexico, with over 17,000 children
and young adults participating.

There is not a project comparable to Esperanza Azteca in all of Mexico, a program articulating
exceptional efforts to recruit, train, and promote talented young musicians and singers from all of
Mexico to the world.
