Taxco with the choir


I'm back in the DF after a weekend in Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero with the choir. The choir has an ongoing relationship with UNAM's CEPE (Centro de Enseñanza Para Extranjeros, where foreigners can go to take Spanish and cultural classes) in Taxco and has visited multiple times over the past few years to give concerts. This was my second visit to Taxco with the choir, after last year's November visit (you can read more here).

Santa Prisca Church, where we performed Saturday night

We left Friday afternoon to get there in time for an evening concert at UNAM's CEPE. Saturday morning we had rehearsal in the Santa Prisca Church before some free time to stroll around Taxco and browse (and buy) some of Taxco's famous silver (what can I say, I'm a sucker for jewelry). Saturday evening we performed at the Santa Prisca Church, a new venue for the choir. In both concerts we included songs by the late singer, compositor and Taxco-native Raful Krayem Sánchez, who is being honored the month of October in Taxco.
