The Mariachi group was wonderful as always. They really use this beautiful theater well. One of the band members goes nearly to the back of the theater and plays a number from the back. One of the students from the 1999 CSU Summer Arts class that workshopped with the Mariachis was so good that she was asked to become a band member. She has sang in the Tower Theatre in 1999 as a student, then in 2001 and 2003 as a band member. When you hear her sing, you know exactly why she was asked to become part of the group. Her voice is gorgeous. In fact, many of the women who sing in the Fresno State mariachi group have beautiful voices. You can clearly tell that Fresno loves mariachi music. The Tower Theatre is packed with music lovers for this concert.
If you missed them, don't worry. It's very likely that they'll be back in 2005. Just look out for them in July of 2005. Check the Fresno Bee or the CSU Summer Arts webpage here.
