We’ve never attended one of the 7 prior “Coro Unido” presentations in Puebla before this year’s 8th version. Featuring a 300+ voice adult and children’s choir, an orchestra, and dramatic elements, the elaborate program is designed as both a Christmas program and a Gospel presentation open to the public.
We drove the 3 hour trip to Puebla and then back again yesterday for an afternoon showing. It was excellent and we even enjoyed some good Puebla food (they have some great tacos over there!). We saw a number of Camino missionaries. Terry Vanderwerf is a Camino missionary who directed (once again) the entire production which was a culmination of 10 months of preparations and practices. A local Puebla TV station recorded the presentation for a Christmas Eve airing.
Here are some photos from the day, mostly from the presentation:
