Migrant Mariachi Program Bio
Director Nick and Silvia Olmos

The Migrant Mariachi Sol Juvenil class is made up of students’ grades 4 -8 who are learning to play traditional mariachi songs with musical arrangements written by the instructor for this specific class. The class meets and rehearses on Saturdays and during the summer at various school sites throughout the District. Due to the popularity of the class in the last few years, we have been able to implement a Beginning and Advanced class allowing us to serve more migrant students with this program. Students who participate in the class are required to have at least 1 year of musical experience playing in their school music program. On top of continuing in the development of learning a musical instrument, this ensemble promotes discipline, teamwork, and a commitment to excellence as every student has an important responsibility in the group. The group has had several performances throughout the community including concerts for the CSUB-HESF Scholarship Awards Program at the Dore Theatre, the CABE Conference at the Marriot Hotel, Knott’s Berry Farm, and the 37TH Annual State Migrant Parent Conference to be held in Los Angeles in 2016.
