The top vocal finalists vie for the Grand Champion title during the 29th Annual Mariachi Extravaganza National Vocal Competition. Exceptionally talented vocalists compete in one of three categories: Elementary/Middle School, High School and College/University. Finalists adorn traditional trajes and elegant, Mexican-inspired dresses while demonstrating vocal talent and skills with traditional mariachi songs and live mariachi accompaniment. Excitement builds with one great performance after another where nearly 40 students showcase their skills in front of a discerning panel of judges and a live audience. Judges select first, second and third place winners in each category, but the thrill of the event, is the announcement of the Grand Champion Vocal winner! Mark your calendar and plan to attend the National Vocal Competition which is one of the highlights of the 29th Annual Mariachi Extravaganza.
