¡Viva Mariachi! festival returns!
We are proud to present the third annual ¡Viva Mariachi! festival in the NVC Performing Arts Center.
This cultural event promotes the rich heritage and traditions of Mexico through Mariachi music and music education. This year’s concerts will feature three award winning bands representing three different levels of music education: Mariachi de Uclatlán from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), Mariachi Cantares de Mi Tierra from the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, and Mariachi Los Gavilanes De Monaco Middle School from Las Vegas. These three bands are high-profile mariachi bands who have received numerous awards and competed in national mariachi competitions.
The festival connects our community to higher education and offers an opportunity to see firsthand how mariachi programs are thriving in the U.S and how they serve to enhance students’ academic performance.
