Another unique aspect of Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque is its signature Hall of Fame induction ceremony highlighting the careers and contributions of many of the most successful individuals in the mariachi music community.
This year, MSA has added a new element to the program in an effort to strengthen the Albuquerque community's knowledge of Mariachi Spectacular. MSA has partnered with the UNM Alumni Association and its Lobo Living Room Series to offer the community a rare glimpse into the instructional dynamic between master teacher and student as well as sharing the history of mariachi music with attendees.
Lastly, the concert series is one of the most popular elements of the week long festivities. The Showcase Concert held each year at Civic Plaza features aspiring amateur mariachi groups from all around our country including San Diego, Scottsdale, Denver, Houston, Chicago just to name a small number of the large competitive field that provides a rich cultural experience for audiences to enjoy. All of this entertainment comes to our community free as a courtesy of the City of Albuquerque. The finale is the Saturday Night Spectacular Concert which features the world's greatest professional groups for audiences to experience. This year leading an All-Star line-up is the internationally acclaimed Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán.
