Eastern Connecticut State University’s Performing Arts Department will continue to celebrate The Big Read Project during National Hispanic Heritage Month, with an afternoon of music and entertainment by David Giardina and Mariachi Fiesta del Norte on Sept. 20 from 3-5 p. m. in the University’s Student Center Café. The public is invited. Admission is free.
Fiesta del Norte is an interactive Hartford-based Mariachi band that performs traditional, folk and popular Mexican music on authentic instruments. The musicians dress in customary charro outfits as they interweave songs with translations, storytelling, joyful gritos and cultural insights. They describe their music as “always uplifting, interactive and in many cases – educational.”
The public is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the local food bank.
