PREVIEW: Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán

On Friday, February 14 at 8 pm, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán will perform at Hill Auditorium, with an opening act featuring Ballet Folklórico de Detroit and Mariachi Nuevo Santander from Roma, TX.

Founded in a small city near Jalisco by Don Gaspar Vargas in the 1890s, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán “basically invented the modern mariachi,” and they are known today for blending both new and old styles. I’m excited to hear this world-class ensemble live.

Tickets are available at the Michigan League Ticket Office or on the University Musical Society website. As always, students tickets are $12 or $20 with ID.
