The Visalia Opera Company and UCLA Mariachi de Uclatlán will perform its first concert featuring Visalia Opera Company singersaccompanied by the mariachi orchestra at the Main Street Theatre, 307 East Main Street, Visalia.The idea of mariachi and opera partnering together may sound out of the ordinary, yet it should not be. Mariachi music is expressive and extroverted, requiring vocal power and technique quite similar to that used by traditional opera singers. Through the mixing of these genres, the audience will be assured of an authentic visit to the color and exuberant music of Mexico and be delighted by the power and skill of talented and trained singers.Alcholic drinks and food will be sold during intermission. This is a fundraiser for both the Mariachi group and the Visalia Opera Company. Both groups appreciate the support.
