Two traditional mariachi tunes, "Alá en el Rancho Grande" and "La Adelita," along with a new original, "Polka de San Antonio" by John Nieto, form a fabulous medley for any happy occasion---any fiesta. As the title (translated "The Festival of Strings") indicates, make it a party! In 2/4 and first position with some chromatic alterations, this piece is accessible and fun to play. The rhythmic pulse continues throughout this exciting piece.For additional exploration of mariachi repertoire for the string orchestra or small ensembles, see Mariachi Philharmonic by Bob Phillips and John Nieto at alfred.com.
