Congratulations Mariachi Viva for being chosen as the Hispanic Spirit Award winner at the inaugural event, Adelante y Exito, sponsored by the East Valley Hispanic of Commerce! What a tremendous honor to be recognized for the work we've been doing in our community with our youth to preserve the spirit of our heritage: the music of the mariachi.
It seems not so long ago we opened our doors to East Valley families to provide instruction with the hopes of raising our young people to a higher consciousness of the importance heritage, tradition, music, and the community. We've come a long way since 1997, and intend to press forward with these same principles in mind.
We are humbled by this award, and would like to dedicate it to all of the families and students who have passed through our doors. Thank you for keeping our culture alive! Read about the Hispanic Spirit Award
