A handful of new Middletown High School, Twin Towers and Monhagen Mariachi musicians recently had an opportunity to participate and perform with the established Mariachi program at White Plains High School.
The Mariachi Juvenil Los Tigres, dressed in full costume, performed four songs in the Twin Towers band room - and then worked with and performed two more songs with our scholar-musicians. This is the first year Middletown has had this program. White Plains is in its ninth year, and was able to enthusiastically share their expertise with their new friends here.
Our scholars practiced together in the weeks heading into this workshop/performance, and then worked with the White Plains musicians in small groups - followed by playing together. This was a wonderful opportunity for our scholars, and could pave the way for the growth of this program. We will share video of this when it is available.
