The North American

The Mexican-born New York maestrea Alondra de la Parra shares her big ideas.

Now twenty-nine years of age, New York City-based Mexican maestro Alondra de la Parra founded the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas in 2004 while a student at the Manhattan School of Music. Three years later, the orchestra inaugurated Ninõs, its New york City public-school arts-in-education pilot program that teaches eight- and nine-year-olds the basics of music composition. In September the orchestra’s Mexican tour culminated in a bicentennial celebration in Mexico City, where the musicians performed popular works as well as selections from its double CD, Mi Alma Mexicana (Sony), a collection of orchestral works by Mexican composers from the past two hundred years that has reached No. 2 on the Mexican popular charts.
