Enjoy a talented multicultural symphony in a lovely restored Opera House… in Mexico!


The Sinaloa Symphony Orchestra is a wonderful blend of international talent. Reporter Eric Scigliano of Crosscut in Seattle recently had the pleasure of visiting Mazatlán and enjoyed meeting two members of the symphony, too.  He wrote about it in his piece, Go South, Young Musician. Be sure t read all the way to the end of the piece.

Mazatlán is a unique city – has a lovely Centro Historico, a lively cultural scene, fantastic beaches, and lovely sunsets every single night.

A Fabulous Night of Flamenco in Mazatlán


 

 

 

 

 

 

I love México… but I especially love Mazatlán. Over the years we have had hundreds of special and memorable nights. Free performances of every kind. Moderately priced opera and symphony tickets in a renovated theater. Nights where the air is warm, the people stroll the plazas, and the music has a beat that makes everyone tap their foot or get up and dance.

Last Friday was another one of those nights, I hope you’ll enjoy it, too. Here’s my blog post Flamenco in Mazatlán.

Two “Real Life in Mazatlán” Videos


Sinaloa gets a bad rap in the press because a drug cartel is based there. But people who live there know it just as where they live. They live, work, play, enjoy a day off or a cold beer. MazReal has captured the essence of Mazatlán in the two videos below:

The first is an evening at the bar at the Belmar Hotel, a classic hotel built in the 40′s and a favorite of John Wayne in the day. The hotel faces the Pacific Ocean.

This video shows a festive night in Mazatlán as the city enjoys El Dia de la Musica in 2011.
