La Trova Productions of Casa de Cultura is continuing its Sunday musical programs at historic El Fidel Hotel.
On Sunday, Dec.,14, A Mariachi Christmas will feature Mariachi Cardenal from Memorial Middle School and Robertson High.
They will be accompanied by Mariachi Paisano del Valle, recording artists, with a history of performances throughout New Mexico and other southwest venues.
Both groups are under the direction of Martin Sena, maestro of mariachi music in northern New Mexico for more than 10 years.

“We have seven or eight mariachi groups here alone.” Ortega said they are planning a mariachi spectacular next May for Mothers’ Day, as a fundraiser for the mariachi groups of San Miguel County.
