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 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 Friday the 16th’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!

Groups must register to be able to send a video submission for the Virtual Showcase Competition. Individuals can also use the registration form to register for the instrumental clinicals that will be held the same day virtually. Those who register within a group will also receive email invites to be able to attend the clinicals for their respective instruments. For any questions you may have please contact
