Biography

Mariachi Garibaldi is the performing ensemble from Southwestern College, the first school in the world to offer a college degree in mariachi music. Students study mariachi performance, music theory, instrumental and vocal technique, mariachi history, as well as general education requirements. Former students have moved on to receive Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music, perform mariachi profes-sionally, and they are beginning to fill the great need for mariachi teachers that exists across the US today.

Mariachi Garibaldi has performed innumerable engagements in and around San Diego including several national education conferences, they have been featured in both American and Mexican national news broadcasts, they feature prominently in the new documentary “In the Name of Mariachi Music” which details the impact the US is having on the history and future of mariachi, their concerts at Southwestern College consistently sell out, they have traveled to perform for the famed “Encuentro de Mariachi” in Guadalajara nearly every year since 2002, and they recently returned from performing in Russia in June, 2009, France in February, 2010, and China in September, 2010.
