Event Details

Tradition, passion… excellence! For this performance, they are partnering with Zavala Hispanic Cultural Initiative to bring in Mariachi Las Altenas, which will be kicking off National Hispanic Heritage Month!

Join them on Thursday, September 16th at The Forum for Mariachi Las Alteñas! Experience the tradition and passion of this all-female mariachi group as we kick off Hispanic Heritage Month with Zavala Hispanic Cultural Initiative! Mariachi Las Alteñas is making waves across the US and their mission is to achieve excellence as overall musicians and performers, and to raise the standards for women in mariachi music. This event is for all ages to enjoy!

This prestigious mariachi is under the direction of Valerie Vargas and consists of 10 members. Las Alteñas has a complete instrumentation, which includes five violins, two trumpets, a guitarron, vihuela, and guitar creating a full mariachi sound acknowledged in the industry. Many spectators are impressed with not only the musicianship, but also with the groups’ stage presence. Choreography plays a major role in the groups’ performances as does interacting with the audience.

Their goals for this series continue to be simple: provide an opportunity for the community to listen to diverse styles of music in a comfortable atmosphere, at a modest price point for guests. However, the struggles and challenges of 2020 showed them a need to focus on working together with our fellow community organizations to bring our audiences together. Through many conversations and brainstorming sessions, they’ve put together a vibrant season of performances to bring the unique focus and expertise of these community organizations to Sounds of Speedway.
