National Symphony Orchestra - Dialogues with Dance - Works by Borodin, Copland and Dvorak

American conductor Tara Simoncic had a triumphant presentation in her debut in Mexico leading the National Symphony Orchestra (OSN) on Friday night at the Palacio de Bellas Artes. At the end of the concert, she had to return to the stage three times at the insistence of the public, who enthusiastically applauded her, as well as the musicians of the group.
