Mariachi Youth Program

The Mariachi Youth Program, sponsored by the Mexican Heritage Plaza in San Jose, has been available to children in public schools since 1992. Mariachi, a style that combines Spanish composition with traditional indigenous music, has been passed on orally for generations in the Latino community. Spark drops in on the program while they train youth in trumpet, violin, guitar, guitarrón, vihuela and vocals.
