NOTICE — MARIACHI SAN LUIS WILL BE PERFORMING AT LEON MEMORIAL HALL AT ASU ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 7, AT 6:00 PM, NOT COLE PARK, DUE TO RAIN.
The Alamosa Live Music Association presents Mariachi San Luis at Sundays at Six, August 7th in Cole Park, Alamosa. Come celebrate our region’s Hispanic heritage with a favorite local mariachi group.
The group began as a result of a conference sponsored by Adobe de Oro – Concilio de Artes held in Alamosa, Colo., in the fall of 1998. Mariachi San Luis is composed of younger students and adults. Their goal is to provide a safe, educational, alcohol and drug-free environment. This vibrant group of musicians has achieved remarkable growth and maturity, which can be attributed to the dedication of the students and a very aggressive performance schedule. The mariachi group has performed in communities all over the San Luis Valley, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver and Santa Fe.
Although mariachi music originated in Jalisco, Mexico, groups in the United States have appropriated the style as a proud expression of their heritage, and, although they appeal to audiences of any ethnicity, Mariachi San Luis is a fine example of this movement.
Sundays at Six is a free outdoor concert series in Cole Park, Alamosa. Concerts start at 6 p.m. Check out this year’s lineup. In case of bad weather, go to ALMA’s website and Facebook page to find out about cancellations or change of venue.
