What better way to open our ASU Symphonic Orchestra 2023-24 season than a celebration?!

Come party with us as we honor Mexican Independence Day with an exciting concert! The ASU Symphony Orchestra will perform pieces by Gabriela Ortiz, José Pablo Moncayo and Silvestre Revueltas, to name a few.

With plenty of surprises and stellar guests aligned, we will be collaborating with the ASU Mariachi ensemble led by Scott Glasser, as well as special guests of honor, Mariachi Garibaldi.

This concert is co-sponsored by ASU Gammage, the ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre and the Herberger Institute Culture and Access. The media sponsor for the Sept. 16 events is Telemundo.

Join us for a post-concert celebration at the Music Building Lawn just across the street. There will be food trucks, snacks, a live DJ, arts & crafts projects, and lawn and table games. Please RSVP for the post-concert celebration using this link: https://specialevents.asu.edu/768409
