We performed Mendelssohn's Elijah and the Haydn Te Deum in Mexico City.
A more complete account is
here in the HSC Archives,
but these pictures document some of what we did.
Waiting for a rehearsal to start at the concert hall, the Salle Nezahualcoyotl (which, after a lot of practice, I have learned to say -- after a fashion).
And here is the first look at our angels, the children's chorus that joined us for Elijah. We were hanging around backstage and one of them handed
me her camera. I assumed that she wanted me to take a group picture of her with her friends -- but it turned out that she wanted a picture with me!
I grouped up with them -- and the camera battery ran out. So I lent them my camera to take the picture and got an email address to send it to.
We took an excursion to Taxco, which is quite a long bus ride into the
mountains. It's a mining area and we visited a silver shop.
Sculptures showing how they costume for one of their religious festivals.
Scott and I climbed through the steep, winding streets to get a fine view of the
main cathedral and the surrounding city.
The wives were waiting for us back at the town square in front of the cathedral.
And we went on for a beer at a nice place overlooking the town.
Below, our favorite restaurant, the
Hacienda de Tlalpan. We've usually gone there in the evening, often
after a performance so it's late.
This time it was Sunday afternoon, and they were closing at 6 PM. It's very different with the kids playing in the garden -- and chasing the peacocks.
