Virtual #CovidCorridos Workshop

Students had a crash course on how to write a corrido in this 4 day virtual workshop. A corrido is a traditional, Mexican musical storytelling form typically about a tragic event or circumstance...such as a pandemic! Students shared their contemporary stories on how their families are dealing with the COVID pandemic; in addition to workshops on songwriting, audio editing software, and how to use social media.

Mariachi STEAM Summer Camp

In this week long camp, students learn new and hone existing skills. Besides focusing on theory & composition and the history of Mariachi music, students learn to digitize and edit their music — we explore how technology can preserve this 100+ year old community art form.

In addition to rehearsals and academic classes, there are afternoon and evening activities facilitated by collegiate student mentors. The camp closes with a concert performance on the final day.
