YOUTH MARIACHI PROJECT

The Youth Mariachi Project began in 2011 as a collaboration between the Chehalem Cultural Center and the Newberg School District (NSD). Over the years it has grown into thriving young performance group that allows  students come to learn the traditional instruments of mariachi music, including guitarrone, vihuela, trumpet, violin, guitar, and voice.  

Once a student is given instruction in every instrument, he or she allowed to select one for focus. Students receive individual instruction in their instrument and they participate in ensemble instruction. At least three times per semester, the group is encouraged to perform for the public—usually at festivals or events held by the Chehalem Cultural Center but several times they have performed at offsite events, including district events, and for funding bodies.
