Houston's Symphony's Celebrates Mariachi

This weekend Houston's Symphony's Orchestra will be celebrating the msic of "mariachi". 

     Mariachi say our friends at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is a form of folk music from Mexico. 

     Mariachi began as a regional folk style called “Son Jaliscience” in the center west of Mexico originally played only with string instruments and musicians dressed in the white pants and shirts of peasant farmers.

     The musical style began to take on national prominence in the first half of the 20th century, with its promotion at presidential inaugurations and on the radio in the 1920s.

Two Gentlemen of Verona
Directed by Brendon Fox
A romantic, funny comedy, TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA follows two young couples—Proteus and Julia, Valentine and Sylvia—as they navigate falling in love and growing up fast in small-town life and sexy, fast-paced Hollywood.
The 1930s is the perfect setting for a witty look at competitive friends, smart-aleck servants, glamorous starlets, intimidating movie moguls, and of course a dog who just wants to be fed.

Henry IV, Part 1
Directed by Jack Young
The original “Game of Thrones”—after deposing Richard II, the new monarch Henry IV finds England in chaos. His son Prince Hal spends his time in the taverns of London with brigands and drunkards, led by the pot-bellied prankster Falstaff. Their revels are interrupted by rebellions from the north and west, led by Hal’s rival, the gallant Hotspur. The Battle of Shrewsbury looms ahead, and with it, the fate of the House of Lancaster.
