La Pasión de Mariachi

La Pasion de Mariachi is a celebration of the art form of Mariachi. The purpose is to create greater awareness, understanding and appreciation of the traditional and authentic music of Mariachi. The evening program will provide insights into the music, including band member make-up and instruments. Mariachi groups are typically 18-20 member groups similar to an orchestra. Many of the instruments are unique to this form of music such as the guitarron. There will be performances demonstrating the various styles within the genre including Son, Huapango and Ranchera.

There will also be a demonstration of the beautiful teaching exchange between "Master" Instructor and student in violin, guitar and voice. This exercise demonstrates the great gift of the MSA Workshop because it is very seldom that any music form is humble enough to allow iconic master musicians to interact and teach youthful students. It's the Rock & Roll equivalent of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards teaching voice and guitar to an everyday music student.
