Even during social isolation one is still able to take part in entertainment and cultural events. Thanks to technology, you can virtually attend a concert, reading, or even a magic show with your little ones.

The state’s resident artists, as well as cultural and artistic promoters and organizers, have been working hard to provide alternatives and bring art and entertainment to your home. The only thing you need to do is get online and fit one of these choices into your busy schedule.


Music to your ears

Are you sick of your playlist? Enjoy a cultural moment from home with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Yucatán’s professors and musicians.
