San Borja’s Young Symphony Orchestra gave a free concert in Marquina Square. Said classical concert was outdoors and sought to pay homage to our country.

Peruvian musicians can be unpredictable sometimes. A free event was offered to all neighbors in the district of San Borja last Sunday. On this occasion, the musical group performed a wide repertoire of classical music, among the songs that were interpreted it could be found: “Le Nozze di Fígaro” and “Adagio de Violin” by Mozart. Similarly, Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7” and a mix called “Te Amo Perú” were performed in order to pay homage to our country.

San Borja’s Young Symphony Orchestra has more than 30 members on stage, ranging in age from 15 to 25 years old. They perform in various different public spaces in the district (parishes and institutions); including their first outdoor presentation in the park El Pinar, last May.

As it is known, San Borja is the first district to have a symphony orchestra. This artistic project has already been active for two years and it offers a wide variety of musical instruments on stage.

This symphony orchestra is still open to new members, who can apply to join the band. The auditions are held every Saturday at the San Borja’s Cultural Center where young people from San Borja and other districts can participate.

It is important to keep boosting Peruvian music which is very well-received around the world.

What do you think about these types of concerts? Would you like to see more symphony orchestras playing in public places?
