For those of you who are Esquivel fans...

I just have to share some really exciting news. On July 15, our very own Tim Mayer will raise his conducting baton (and also his saxophone) to direct the National Jazz Orchestra of México in an **unbelievable** concert celebrating Esquivel's 100th birthday.

...and I get to sing with this amazing group.

As you might know, commercial versions of these scores don't exist, and so Tim has done all of the transcriptions himself. The amount of work that represents is mind boggling, but I've seen the scores and they're *gorgeous.* I can not wait to sing this music!!

If you have any chance of being in México City at 6pm on Sunday, July 15th, do yourself a favor and BE THERE.

Link for tickets (prices are in pesos, so don't freak out at the price; they're about $32 each): https://m.ticketmaster.com.mx/Juan-Garcia-Esquivel-100-anos-Por-boletos/artist/2473952


I figured I should also put this here, for all to hear.

And, I'll even throw in the event poster!

I sooooo wish we could be there. I want to see you raise your baton and saxophone at the same time!

Congrats!

Thank you both! It will be a truly memorable concert, many firsts are in the works, including expansions of a good few Esquivel originals from a smaller instrumentation to the full orchestra, many pieces that have never been performed, and a few that have, but this time, with more accurate transcriptions.

While it's too early to say it will definitely happen again, that's basically the idea behind this project, to bring the musical legacy of Esquivel back to the attention of the public here, and to make younger generations of musicians aware of it. I do hope either in a subsequent concert here, some of you can attend, or that we get the chance to bring it to the US.

Either way, stay tuned!

Here's a bit of news coverage from our open rehearsal this past Saturday, June 16. Despite the whole thing being in Spañol, you might recognize a couple of faces there...

I'm sure it will in some way. I can't guarantee the quality at this time...
