Mariachi Los Caballeros

Mariachi Los Caballeros de Cal Poly Pomona was formed in 2016-2017 due to a high level of student interest and demand for learning mariachi music. The ensemble is open to students of any major, background, and experience level. An audition is not required to enroll in the ensemble; however, all students will be required to play an instrument and practice singing. If you do not currently play an instrument, make an appointment with Dr. Vallejo (jmvallejo at cpp dot edu) to discuss instrument availability. Knowledge of Spanish is helpful but not required.

Students in Los Caballeros focus on standard mariachi repertoire, performance style, music fundamentals, and reading music notation. Los Caballeros and Los Broncos often perform together on campus and for our departmental concerts.

Students may enroll in MU 3580A, Section 02 to join Los Caballeros. The class is typically held on Thursday evenings, 5-6:50pm.
