To Russia With Love…
support mariachi ocelotetlan
Help send Mariachi Ocelotetlán to Russia, where they have been invited as guest artists by Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia in St. Petersburg to perform during the White Nights festivities.
Under the direction of Antonio Briseño, the mariachi students will spend a week on their exciting journey, from May 15-22. The ensemble will be sharing its unique sound with the students of Herzen University and the citizens of historical St. Petersburg at a time when summer has finally arrived and the city will be alive with merriment.
“This prestigious invitation to perform in St. Petersburg, Russia has generated an explosion of activity to raise the $30,000 needed for the trip and for their uniforms. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is an incredible honor for our university, and the students continue to work successfully towards their fundraising goal.”
