With his first semester in Nashville almost under his belt, Wright Middle and Glencliff High Mariachi instructor Alan Lambert is leading the students in their inaugural holiday concert and fundraiser. From 5:30 - 8:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 13, the Nashville community is invited to join the young Mariachi performers and special guests Sheyla Paz Hicks and Los Delgados! Check out the flyer for more details.
The Wright/Glencliff Mariachi classes made their debut performance during a special field trip to Cheekwood Saturday, Oct. 27. According to leader Alan Lambert, “Not only were the students enthusiastic, but they did a great job performing for the first time in front of their friends and family on the steps of Glencliff High School!” Lambert said after the performance, the group visited Cheekwood Gardens for the Dia de los Muertos event. There students interacted with local mariachis, decorated sugar skulls, and took in the sights, sounds and smells of the beautiful gardens and special exhibits. “For most students and parents, this was their first time at Cheekwood, but it won’t be their last,” said Lambert.
Mariachi offered at Wright Middle, Glencliff High as part of the Music Makes Us education program
Made weekend plans yet? Don't bother! We know what you'll be doing.
Grammy nominated mariachi star José Hernàndez is giving a FREE performance at Glencliff High School this Friday night! He'll be joined by the Veterans Juvenil de America Mariachi Band from Rio Grande City, Texas.
It's all a fundraiser for the Music Makes Us Mariachi program kicking off next year. This new program will bring middle and high school students into the world of mariachi, practicing and performing in school ensembles. Donations will be accepted at this free concert event.
This is a wonderful opportunity to not only enjoy a free concert, but to support a budding music program that could change the lives of young students. Don't miss it!!
