Proposal I

As a guest conductor, maestro will perform with the local orchestras a program of representative mexican
orchestral music, which includes pieces performed with traditional mayan prehispanic instruments:

Arturo Mrquez Danzn No. 2


Arturo Mrquez Danzn No. 8 (Homage to Maurice Ravel)
Jos Pablo Moncayo Huapango
Silvestre Revueltas Sensemay
Silvestre Revueltas - La noche de los mayas

Estimated time: 1 hour 20 minutes

The prehispanic instruments will travel from Mexico to Egypt and should return to Mexico at the end of
the event.
A short version of this program can be used to make a didactic concert for people of all ages
The total people travelling for this option is 3: Guest conductor +1 musical assistant + 1 personal assistant
If theater or concert hall is equipped with performing lights we can hold a design of light for enhancing the
orchestral performances with our Light Artist.
The biggest orchestration is as follows: 2 flutes (both = piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets (both = E-flat clarinet), bass
clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bongos, caracol, drum - with snares,
drum - without snares, guiro, huehuetl, Indian drum, sonajas, tam-tam, tom-toms, tumbadora, tumkul, and xylophone),
piano, and strings

Proposal II

A Mexican ensemble will present a program of Mexican chamber music which represents the evolution of
music through the eyes of withstanding composer Silvestre Revueltas:

8 por Radio
Homenaje a Federico Garca Lorca
Cuarteto de Cuerdas
Canciones sobre textos de Garca Lorca

Estimated time: 1 hour

The particular ensemble include: 1 flute, 1 clarinet, 1 bassoon, 1 trumpet, 1 trombone, 1 tuba, 1 percusionist,
1 pianist, 2 violins, 1 viola, 1 cello, 1 contrabass, 1 singer and 1 assistant, 15 people in total.
This program can be played as a didactic concert about Mexican music in schools with minimum
requirements, we are also interested in working with people who has not common access to a concert hall:
refugees, elder people, children, etc. so, if the case, we can program more than 1 or 2 concerts only

Both proposals can be implemented together if the chamber group integrates for the full orchestra
concert in a kind of Sister Cultures concert, the number of people remains the same

Proposal III
To bring our Mexican orchestra as a guest to Egypt, the performing program would be the same. The
estimated number of people needed for the performance would be about 60, counting the staff people.
