NISD All-State Mariachi Selections

Congratulations to Elizabeth Gutierrez, Holmes High School student, for being selected as the vocalist for the Texas All-State Mariachi Ensemble sponsored by Feria del Mariachi.  In the inaugural year for this ensemble, 9 students from Texas schools were selected.  Organized by Texas State University, the organization is hoping to develop a selection process and concert format similar to the one currently implemented for band, choir, and orchestra students participating in the Texas Music Educators’ Association.

Also from Holmes High School, Francisco Yebra was selected as alternate for vihuela.

The Texas All-State Mariachi Ensemble will perform in concert with world-renown mariachi artist Rigo Berto Alfaro on April 26, 2014 in the Embassy Suites Conference Center, San Marcos, Texas.

Holmes High School Mariachi Director is Aaron Rios.

Congratulations to our NISD mariachi musicians!
