Hey guys, welcome back to school! Once again it is time to string those guitars, tune those trumpets, line up the violins, and get started with Mariachi rehearsals! Like the end of summer break, the 25TH Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza will be here in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, you and your group will be standing on the stage of the Lila Cockrell Theatre performing a set that you’ve put sweat, blood, and tears into, right in front of “El mejor mariachi del mundo , Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan.”
We are so excited for December to arrive and witness what you and your group have prepared for the 25th Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza. The time to register is now! We are three days away from officially opening up our registration portal, and with that comes an early registration special. This will be going on from September 1ST – October 31ST. Make sure to take advantage of this amazing offer before prices go up. Registration rates vary between groups, individuals, and directors so make sure to check out our website for more information.
If you are a vocalist who wishes to enter our National Vocal Competition, please complete an individual registration form. This must be completed whether you are registering with or without your school group. Submit a YouTube link for your preliminary audition on or before October 1.st. For more information on vocal submissions please visit Mariachimusic.com. Being crowned Grand Champion, or just competing in the National Vocal Competition, has its perks. Winners get the honor of opening up for Mariachi Vargas in concert. In addition, they are first in line to represent the Extravaganza in special performances and may even appear on Television to say the least. Late submissions to the competition will not be accepted so make sure to register as soon as possible and read all of the rules outlined online. Don’t miss the chance to give a performance that might change your life.
Directors, there is one more thing that you might want to know before you get back to rehearsal. We know the beginning of the year can be a bit hectic. You are going to get busy and wait to the last minute to register your group. To avoid this, we are going to give you an incentive to register your group as soon as possible. The first 10 groups to register to the 25TH Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza on Mariachimusic.com will receive a back to school care package. In this package you will find a director’s manual, music, posters, and other goodies from previous years that will help you kick off your school year on the right note. So, what are you waiting for! Register here now!
If you have questions about the registration process, or this year’s Extravaganza, please visit our website at Mariachimusic.com or call our office at (210) 225-3353 Monday through Friday 1 PM to 5 PM. We love hearing from you anytime!
Best of luck on this new school year and see you in December!
