BYU Mariachi Festival includes workshop, performances April 8

Brigham Young University School of Music’s new Mariachi Festival will feature a workshop on the folk music of Mexico, Saturday, April 8 at 1 p.m. in E-250 Harris Fine Arts Center, followed with performances by Mariachi Zavala and the Ogden High School Mariachi Group at 3 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Terrace.

Both the workshop and performance are free and the public is welcome.

The guest clinician, Arturo Zavala, will be joined with his two brothers and father in the festival’s featured Mariachi ensemble, Mariachi Zavala. The Zavalas have performed at theme parks in California, including Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. Zavalo also formed a school Mariachi group at Ogden High School and Ogden Middle School.

BYU music education student Cassie Wernli organized the festival with assistance of a mentoring grant from BYU's Office of Research and Creative Activities, with assistance from BYU music education professor Andrew Dabczynski and members of the BYU student chapter of the American String Teacher’s Association.

For more information, contact Cassie Wernli at (480) 221-5854 or Andrew Dabczynski (801) 422-2317.
