The participation of our beloved Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco in the XXI Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi begins this evening, Friday, August 29, at 8:00 PM. On this occasion, under the baton of our Director Emeritus, Maestro Hector Guzman, we will accompany the Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán, Mariachi de América de Don Jesús Rodriguez de Hijar and Mariachi Vargas.
The Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi, an annual series of events which is always joyously anticipated by an important part of our tapatio (Guadalajara) public and which draws many visitors from other parts of the world, promises a memorable night in each gala for this year's edition. With the Degollado stage decked in its finest and a system of amplification designed to make each mariachi group sound its very best, audiences will also be able to note the excellent accompaniment provided by our Filarmónica, which has its own stellar moments as well.
The OFJ's participation includes presentations tonight, August 29th, and Saturday the 30th, at 8:00 PM in the Teatro Degollado. Then, on Sunday the 31st, we will present our traditional gala pública in the Plaza Liberación (between the Cathedral and the Teatro Degollado).
Next week, galas which include the OFJ are programmed for Wednesday, September 3rd, Thursday the 4th and Friday the 5th, all at 8 PM in the Teatro Degollado. For more information, consult the XXI Encuentro Internacional del Mariachi y la Charrería's webpage at:
