The Tucson International Mariachi Conference proudly presents The “Armando C. Gonzales Student Showcase”  live at the Linda Ronstadt Music Hall Thursday, April 20.

Mariachi and Folklórico groups come together from many cities across the southwestern United States. Their parents, nanas, tatas, tios, tias, padrinos, friends and many family members proudly watch the students perform!

Students take the stage to show off their musical and dancing talents that they have learned in the previous days’ workshops. Student groups, each taking the stage for 9 minutes, perform to a delighted audience.
