Third-Annual Phoenix Mariachi Festival

On the heels of a sold-out performance last year, the third-annual Phoenix Mariachi Festival, filled with lively music in a festive atmosphere, comes to the Orpheum Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 10.

The unmistakable sounds of violins, trumpets, guitar, vihuela and guitarrón will permeate the theater, as Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán will headline the show, as part of its mission of sharing its internationally-recognized Mariachi music “from Mexico to the world.”

The festival will also spotlight a show-stopping performance from famed international soloist Marisa Ronstadt, the younger cousin of famous singer Linda Ronstadt. Marisa has her own band, and her own style – a mix of Mariachi, Classic Rock, Soul, R&B, and Indie Pop.

In addition, festival-goers will have an opportunity to experience a special performance from Mariachi Femenil Las Colibrí, an all-female Mariachi group.

Tucson-based Ballet Folklórico Tapatío, one of the finest folklorico programs in the nation, will also perform.

José Armando Ronstadt, who was inducted into the Tucson International Mariachi Conference Hall of Fame in 2003, will emcee this must-attend event of the holiday season.

Mariachi Saguaritos, a children’s Mariachi ensemble, will be part of the pre-concert in the lobby.
