Mattel, Inc. and The Mariachi Heritage Society Host Live Performances by Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles & Shaila Durcal at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, The Mariachi Heritage Society and Director Jose Hernandez welcome Mattel, Inc. as the title sponsor for this year’s event, Viva El Mariachi. Live performances by Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, Latin Grammy-nominated songstress Shaila Durcal and a showcase featuring students from their mariachi program, will highlight the evening’s festivities. The annual concert and its guests serve to assist with projection costs for the continued education of the MHS.

Throughout Los Angeles County, Jose and his colleagues at The Mariachi Heritage Society have been teaching the art of the 200 year-old Mexican musical tradition known as mariachi. The MHS offers parents an affordable way for their children to become further educated in their Latin culture and a creative outlet for children to participate in giving back to their schools and community through music and positive self-awareness. The MHS believes strongly in giving children “roots to grow and wings to fly.”
