Mariachi Divas

Moraine Valley Community College celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with a performance by six-time Grammy Award nominees and two-time Grammy Award winners, the Mariachi Divas, on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m. The performance will be in the Dorothy Menker Theater, in the Fine and Performing Arts Center, on campus, 9000 W. College Pkwy., Palos Hills. Tickets are $25 for the general public and $20 for seniors and students.

The Mariachi Divas, under the musical direction of Grammy award-winner Alberto “Beto” Jimenez Maeda, are a unique, all-female multicultural ensemble with its foundation and roots in mariachi. The group draws upon its members’ diverse influences to create music that is traditional and then some.

From their home base in Southern California and regular performances at Disney, the Arrowhead Pond, Staples Center, and the Universal Amphitheatre, the Mariachi Divas travel the country bringing their own remarkable mariachi sound wherever they go.

Tickets to the Mariachi Divas and other upcoming performances can be purchased at the Fine and Performing Arts Center website, by calling (708) 974-5500, or at the Box Office located on the south end of the Fine and Performing Arts Center.
