Woodburn High School Mariachi delivered an excellent performance at the 55th Annual Fiesta Mexicana celebration at Legion Park in Woodburn, Sunday, August 5, 2018.
The afternoon performance attracted a large crowd despite the record heat wave that hit Oregon this past week.
The Fiesta Mexicana summer performance is the only one that took place in August but the band keeps a full schedule playing in a variety of venues during the academic year.
The band delivers approximately 40 performance per year and is requested more times than they perform throughout the Pacific Northwest.
The band was incepted in 2003 and “is a component of a complete traditional high school music department of vocal, instrumental and music theory/music history offerings in the Woodburn Arts and Communications Academy. Traditional instrumentation, repertoire and music literacy is the goal,” says a story on their Facebook page. – (Facebook.com/whsmariachi)
Woodburn Arts and Communications Academy teacher, Brian Gingerich, is the director of WHS Mariachi.
