Mariachi Nueva Generación became a class at Texas State University in the fall of 1997. The class is dedicated to the study and performance of the true Mexican art form known as Mariachi. We study and perform music in many styles such as son, huapango, bolero, polka, and many others.
Since its creation, Texas State Mariachi Nueva Generación has established itself as one of the leading university mariachis in Texas.
As performers, Texas State Mariachi Nueva Generación is a very active and sought after ensemble.
The mariachi joins the salsa and jazz ensembles for a yearly recruiting trip to the South Texas area. These trips have included performances at various high schools in Eagle Pass, the Rio Grande Valley, and Laredo, Texas. The group performs regularly for private parties, on and off campus, in the San Marcos, Austin, and San Antonio areas.
Besides its busy performance schedule, the group is committed to hosting the annual “Feria del Mariachi” competition and workshop held in April of each year. For more information, please visit www.feriadelmariachi.com.
