Beyond the Center’s Mariachi summer camps, Your LBC offers pathways so our youth can continue their musical education. Led by music instructor, José Soto, the LBC Mariachi Ensemble is a year-round program serving over 30 students coming from Santa Rosa and Cloverdale at no cost to the student or family. The Ensemble provides an opportunity for students to learn musicianship, technical skills, and stage presence while celebrating the culture of Mariachi. In addition, students learn life-long social and emotional skills including leadership, collaboration, and cooperation. A long term goal for the Ensemble is to perform professionally at community events and compete in state and national Mariachi competitions.
