Unique music in a dreamy setting. Prepare to enjoy the sixth concert season of Chamber Music Merida at Hacienda Xcanatún. This chamber music cycle has been known for taking new, fresh paths, with new musicians joining from the Yucatán Symphony Orchestra. There are now 13 different groups performing!

Each one of the concerts has been planned to surprise and delight you, each one more than the one before. They will range from baroque to The Beatles, from brass instruments to 16th century instruments, all a great experience. Also the Yucatecan soprano, Julia Arcudia, will be singing; we think you will fall in love with her voice.

The Chamber Music Merida concerts are held exclusively at the beautiful Hacienda Xcanatún, the perfect stage. One of the advantages of attending the presentations at this hacienda is that you become an essential part of the performances, feeling almost as if you were one of the chamber members, being in such an intimate space. As Dr. Leroy Osman says, “now you have a front row seat!”

During the upcoming season, two invited guests will be performing: Professor Will Strieder, famous trumpeter, who has performed several times with the UADY orchestra, and Dr. Keith Thorp, well known harpsichordist who will bring 16th century instruments that form a part of his own personal collection.
