Summer Concert Series: Fiesta del Norte
July 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
TODAY: Fiesta del Norte …
Come hear Connecticut’s first mariachi band, Fiesta del Norte perform the traditional folk and popular music of Mexico. Dressed in traditional sombreros and “charro” outfits, their repertoire spans from the Mariachis of Jalisco to the Nortenas of Chihuahua, to the harp music of Vera Cruz, down to the Marimba music of Chiapas. All this played on authentic instruments such as guitar, vihuela, guitarron, violin and trumpet, with beautiful singing throughout. Song translations, storytelling and cultural insights are interwoven between musical numbers.
Join us for our annual FREE Summer Concert Series! Stop by every Friday at lunchtime to hear a different band play each week on the East Lawn of Connecticut’s Old State House. Bring your lunch and enjoy the music! Concerts begin at noon and will also be live-streamed on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
