The first half of the concert consisted of sixth graders from the three San Benito area middle schools: Miller Jordan, Berta Cabaza and San Benito Riverside. The second half featured the VMA Mariachi band.
It was a memorable evening for the parents in attendance as the Orchestra charmed the audience and the Mariachi band brought the house down, performing classic Spanish songs such as, “Hermoso Cariño” and “La Bamba.”
Orchestra and Mariachi Director Karina Vela called the concert, which was held at the San Benito High School Band Hall, a success.
“I am very proud of these students,” Vela said. “I am very happy with how they turned out tonight.”
