Do you want to broaden your horizons, have a different type of evening, and spend time inside one of the Centro Histórico’s most innovative venues? Well, there is now a series of concerts which will allow you to do all this, and at a great price.

Baroque, classical, contemporary, and jazz…an inclusive collection of musical genres awaits you at “Pocket Concerts,” a brand new series of chamber music concerts that will have its first season from September to December and will welcome world-class musicians to our city.

For their inaugural season, Pocket Concerts has chosen the Palacio de la Música as a venue, a place destined to the learning and appreciation of Mexican music culture making it the perfect setting. Each night will feature a different musical program and artists.

Before each concert, an informal chat will take place at 8 pm where the topics of discussion will include the genre, history, and pieces of the evening. “The main objective of Pocket Concerts, is to create a friendly environment, both for attendants and musicians,” says Samuel Rafinesque, organizer of this event.

Enjoy this reduced format that brings artists closer to the public. After the concert, finish your evening with dinner at one of the amazing restaurants in the Centro Histórico. Talk amongst your companions about the pre-concert chat and your favorite pieces of the evening; you’ll be sure to run into the familiar faces of other attendants who were at the same show and are now out enjoying the town as well. There are some great restaurants on the same block as the Palacio de la Música, or if you prefer it, walk to Parque de Santa Lucía, it’s only two blocks away, and has plenty of delicious options.



The artists who will be presenting during this season include:

  • Manuel Escalante with a classical piano program on October 2
  • Adrián Oropeza with his original jazz compositions on October 17
  • The Khachaturian Trio from Armenia who will interpret classics from the Russian repertoire for violin, clarinet, and viola at both Pocket Concerts on October 24 and at this year’s Festival Cervantino
  • The Mexican author and composer Alex Mercado who will present a jazz piano selection on November 6
  • Tierra Mestiza who will perform a world music and baroque recital on November 13
  • Eva Zolner and Heather Roche’s contemporary duet which mixes electronic and instrumental music on December 4.
  • To end the season, Cuarteto Yucatán will host their classic Christmas concert where they will play your holiday favorites on December 27.



So now you know, spend a night inspired by music at one of these innovative concerts!
