2021 Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque Showcase Competition Registration is Open

Mariachi Spectacular Participants:

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque has made the difficult decision to not offer our Annual in person Musical Conference for 2021.

This postponement is very much heartbreaking to the Mariachi Community, as we have now had to go two (2) years without our Spectacular Conference. Despite the challenges given, we have decided that we need to offer our Students, Directors, and Mariachi Community something. After the last of year and a half of student restrictions, and much learning loss in all categories’ it is important more than ever that we promote such opportunity for the students, families, and community to return to normal ground. And so, Mariachi Spectacular will be hosting multiple virtual events that will all be viewable online through our Facebook and Youtube pages!

As, we cannot give out the full experience, we feel it is important that the students and future of Mariachi Music, receive some sort of Educational, and Musical instruction. These events will include clinicals similar to our conference workshops but will be taught by Mariachi Spectacular alumni who have taken part in our conferences and become instructors, a virtual concert put on by those same musicians, and a Showcase competition that all Mariachi groups are able to register for here!

To enter the virtual showcase competition, register your mariachi group below (registration is free) to be able to submit a 7 minute video recording of your group performing. All videos must be submitted before June 18th, 2021. Registration will require you to choose a specific category that your group falls into: elementary, middle school, high school, collegiate, or open level. All videos submitted for the competition will be reviewed by a panel of Mariachi Spectacular judges who will choose the top three from each category to be broadcast during our Virtual Mariachi Showcase event on Friday, July 16th, 2021.

During the week of our virtual mariachi event, all finalists chosen for the showcase will also be posted on our Facebook and website for the public to view and vote on. During Friday the 28th’s Showcase event we will announce our 1st and 2nd prize winners, who will receive free entry and half price entry respectively, up to 20 members into next years Mariachi Spectacular de Albuquerque Conference!
