El Cascabel, Mariachi Vargas

Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán

3:00 PM
Sunday, September 28, 2014

Based in Mexico City, Mariachi Vargas is considered the greatest mariachi in the world. Their annual program at Symphony Center continues to delight audiences with infectious energy and joyful interaction. Don’t miss what is “without doubt the best display of mariachi virtuosity” (Los Angeles Times).

After 48 years, trumpeter Federico Torres is retiring from active duty with Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán. "I'm so happy to have been part of a grand tradition," he said. "Soon we will celebrate our 115th anniversary, what a milestone. And I will always cherish my friendships in the group. They have become like members of the family.” Read more at Sounds & Stories.

Come early for a performance by students from the Chicago Mariachi Project's Mariachi Academy from 2:15-2:45 p.m. in the Symphony Center Rotunda!

Note: Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.
