El último tema interpretado fue la marinera norteña, composición del maestro Teófilo Álvarez Álvarez, la cual puso a bailar a los asistentes, entre niños y adultos, que no paraban de aplaudir, para alentar a los trabajadores del Proyecto Especial Complejo Arqueológico Chan Chan (Pecach), que participaron de esta presentación espontánea de la Orquesta Sinfónica de Trujillo.
