Although we’re only in the month of February, it’s already time to start planning your summer and create a list of all the things you’d like to do in order to make the best usage of your time. And be sure to put the Mariachi Extravaganza Summer Camp at the top of your list!!!
You’re invited to attend this year’s Summer Camp which takes place June 17 – 21, 2019 on the banks of the San Antonio River, at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts’ Carlos Álvarez Studio Theater. Yep. Once again, this camp will take place in the state-of-the-art performing arts venue located right in the heart of downtown San Antonio. For anyone interested in learning new tips and techniques on how to enhance their vocal skills, we’re thrilled to announce that our beloved master teacher Octavio Moreno will be leading the camp.
There’s something for everyone, whether you’re new to mariachi or an experienced competitor and/or champion. The camp allows everyone to learn new skills while preparing for a public concert that features beautiful group and solo performances on Friday, June 21. It’s always amazing to see how students progress throughout the week and work hard towards a concert that is always thrilling to watch. Students put 100% of their time and energy into creating an unforgettable experience for all to enjoy.
And it’s super fun to have an entire week to get to know and work with students from more than 20 cities from across the country who share our passion for mariachi music. If you’re a previous Summer Camp participant, please take a moment to share your comment with everyone here on this blog in the comment section. We’d love to hear your comments about previous Summer Camps, and we encourage you to offer advice to those who may be considering attending this year, like that below from 2017 Grand Champion Vocal Winner Jizelle Rodríguez:
Maestro Octavio’s experience, knowledge — and, above all, his talent — never cease to amaze me. I always look forward to getting the chance to learn from him! He takes time to teach technique and showmanship to all his students.
Here’s a testimony from Belinda Hernández Arriaga:
The Mariachi Extravagaza summer vocal camp is a special time to learn from some of the most amazing vocal instructors in the mariachi community. During the camp you are immersed in a vibrant environment of canto, amistad y alegría — learning and growing every day with rigorous vocal training to prepare you for competition, enhance your skills and expand your love for singing mariachi. Every year we look forward to coming from California to be part of this wonderful experience.
