Early registration is now open for the 5th Annual Mariachi Extravaganza Summer Camp. All students ages 10-24 who are interested in honing their skills in mariachi music performance are invited to participate June 20-24 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts’ Carlos Álvarez Theater, in San Antonio, Texas.
The Mariachi Extravaganza Summer Camp is an extension of the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza festival, and is open to students from throughout the United States. The Summer Camp was created five years ago to provide support, training and preparation for students interested in competing in the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza National Vocal Competition. Students participating in the camp will have the opportunity to develop their skills in stage presence, projection, diction, public speaking and overall performance. The camp is open to mariachi musicians and vocalists of all levels.
Camp participants will perform in a public recital to be held on Friday, June 24 at 7 p.m. at the Carlos Álvarez Theater. The recital will include artistic performances featuring students singing both in individual and group settings.
The Mariachi Extravaganza Summer Camp brings together some of the world’s most accomplished and skilled mariachi vocalists and vocal instructors. This summer’s instructors will be announced soon.
The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts’ Carlos Álvarez Theater is located at 115 Auditorium Circle, in the heart of downtown San Antonio. The theater is walking distance from the famous Riverwalk, several downtown hotels and the Rivercenter Mall.
