Lupita Infante featuring a performance by The Latino Arts Strings Program

Lupita Infante featuring a performance by The Latino Arts Strings Program

March 3 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm CST

Lupita Infante featuring a performance by The Latino Arts Strings Program

With an elegant and graceful style reminiscent of Mexico’s classic mariachi crooners, recording artist Lupita Infante brings a sensual and soothing vocal contrast to the bold sounds of regional Mexican music. Infante’s GRAMMY nominated debut album, “La Serenata”, is proof that she is a star on the rise not only for her talent but for her perseverance.

A big part of Lupita’s artistry is paying tribute to the tradition and beauty of her heritage, while also providing a youthful bicultural perspective to the regional Mexican genre. Although Lupita’s music is traditional in some ways, she believes in the power of progress and bravely questions some long-held traditions through her songwriting and fashion style.

The Latino Arts Mariachi Juvenil, led by Dinorah Marquez, is the flagship ensemble of the Latino Arts Strings Program. In the past 20 years, the group has given more than 500 performances for diverse audiences and venues. The Mariachi Juvenil has been featured with important professional groups such as Mariachi Vargas de Tecatitlan, Mariachi Cobre, Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, Aida Cuevas, Mariachi Sol de Mexico, Cuarteto “La Catrina,” Sweet Plantain, Las Cafeteras and La Santa Cecilia, Grammy award-winning Mariachi Flor de Toloache, and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Home Town Tours, to name a few. This branch of the Strings Program was established to foster cultural pride in our students and to have students become musical ambassadors for our community and our countries of origin throughout the Midwest and beyond.
