The World-famous Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán returns to Corpus Christi for the 7th Annual Corpus Christi Mariachi Music Festival

Corpus Christi, Texas (August 1, 2014)...Tickets to see Mariachi Vargas in Corpus Christi go on sale August 13. The event marks the 7th consecutive year that the world-renowned Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán has performed in the Coastal Bend area. The event is part of the 7th Annual Corpus Christi Mariachi Music Fest held at the American Bank Center Selena Auditorium on Saturday, September 13 at 8 p.m.
 
Since its inception, the heart of the Corpus Christi Mariachi Music Fest has been Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán— unquestionably the most important ensemble in the history of mariachi music. For over half a century, this group has been considered the finest mariachi in the world (“el mejor mariachi del mundo”), a title it continues to uphold. Founded in 1898, in the southern Jalisco village of Tecalitlán, the band recently celebrated its 115th anniversary. No other mariachi in history has had a trajectory or influence remotely comparable to that of Vargas. Its current generation represents the state of the art in mariachi music: world-class vocalists and instrumentalists, flawless ensemble work, impeccable taste in arrangements and repertoire, and spellbinding showmanship—while at the same time preserving the traditional folk music of the group’s rural origins.
Mariachi Vargas in concert is presented by KRIS Communications to help bring quality cultural arts programming to the Coastal Bend area. This event, hosted by broadcast veteran Maclovio Perez, coincides with Mexico’s Dieciseis de Septiembre (September 16) Independence Day Celebration. Additional support is provided by Clear Channel Radio, the Corpus Christi Caller Times, Inspire Magazine and Mariachimusic.com.
 
Tickets for the concert can be purchased starting at $25 at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or at the American Bank Center Box Office, 1901 North Shoreline, Corpus Christi, TX 78401. For more information, visit mariachimusic.com or call 210-225-3353.
