Mineria Symphony Orchestra

The Music Academy of the Mining Palace is a non-profit private organization, established in 1978 by a group of music-loving engineers, alumni of the National and Autonomous University of Mexico's Engineering Faculty. The Academy sponsors the Orquesta Sinfónica de Mineria, a professional body of the highest quality, regularly performing a series of summer programmes at the famous Nezahualcóyotl Hall. In the late eighteenth century, one of the most exquisite neoclassical buildings in the Americas was built in Mexico City, the Palacio de Mineria, housing until 1954 the School of Mining. Mining was the foremost economic activity in colonial Mexican, and the Palace became a centre for serious musical activities. In the twentieth century the Palace became the base of the Engineering Faculty, and later on a permanent Music Academy was established, thus honouring a fruitful tradition and the commitment of Mexican engineers. The orchestra has been directed by the late Jorge Velazco, Luis Herrera de la Fuente and Carlos Spierer. Appointed in 2006, Carlos Miguel Prieto is currently the principal conductor.
