North Side HS JV Mariachi Ensemble Wins State Title
(February 10, 2020) -- Fort Worth ISD’s North Side Mariachí Espuelas de Cobre earned the state title in the all-level junior varsity division at last weekend’s Texas Association of Mariachi Educators (TAME) State Mariachi Finals.
The junior varsity ensemble qualified for state after earning a Division 1 rating in the TAME Area Mariachi Contest last month. Joining them at the state finals was the varsity ensemble from North Side High School, Mariachí Espuelas de Plata, which finished fourth in the Class 5A division state finals.
The 2020 state mariachi finals took place, February 7 and 8 in Seguin.
“Both groups played well and represented north Texas with pride,” said Imelda Martinez, a director for the North Side mariachi program.
The mariachi programs at North Side are also led by Ramon Niño and Alondra Morales.
