Marcelino Miranda, Press officer for the Mexican Embassy
"Alejandrina Villamil is a young Mexican pianist. She has performed in Mexico and she has had an education and she has been taking courses with great pianists, not only from Mexico but from North America and Europe."
"She is going to present a very interesting program among other pieces of piano that she is going to present from musicians like Mozart, Chopin, Rachmaninov. This is going to be a good concert because that would give the opportunity especially for young people and children to come and enjoy a piano concert. This is part of the cultural exchange program between Mexico and Belize and one of the purposes is to promote music in Belize. That's the reason the embassy decided to invite Alejandrina Villamil to perform here in Belize."
The first concert will be held at the Bliss Centre in Belize City on Saturday evening, and the second will be on Sunday at the George Price Centre in Belmopan. Both concerts are free, and begin at 6:00. Everyone is welcomed to attend.
