Changing Lives through Mariachi Music
MHF invites you to support our Changing Lives through Mariachi Music campaign.
A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 2012, MHF exists to affirm, celebrate and preserve the rich cultural heritage of mariachi music through the following initiatives:
MARIACHI School PROGRAMS
MHF implements mariachi music education programs in underserved Chicago Public Schools (CPS). MHF partners with CPS schools to deliver a standards-based sequential music program aligned to CPS Arts Education Plan goals, CPS Arts Scope & Sequence guidelines, and with new National Core Arts Standards. The mariachi curriculum goes beyond the music and integrates social and emotional development skills and literacy standards to ensure a well-rounded arts education. MHF currently serves nearly 2,100 students in seven schools across the city.
MARIACHI HERENCIA DE MEXICO
MHF offers an audition-based mariachi music program comprised of 90 students from across the city called Mariachi Herencia de México. The program provides students the opportunity to study the mariachi style in an advanced instructional setting in three performing groups, including Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced. Mariachi Herencia de México is MHF's flagship ensemble program. Students perform in concerts, sports functions, community events, corporate receptions and other events throughout the year.
MARIACHI PERFORMING ARTS
MHF presents an annual mariachi concert series to increase the awareness of our mariachi education programs throughout our community. MHF showcases world renowned mariachi artists and ensembles from around the world in the city's most prestigious performing arts venues throughout the year.
MHF seeks your support to expand our mariachi music education programs to deepen the musical, academic and social impact on our students. Private donations are a key component to ensuring the success of MHF's mariachi music programs.
