Mount Vernon School District Mariachi & Folklorico is the biggest Mariachi Program in western Washington with over 100 students. The mission of our Mariachi Program is to keep our Mexican traditions of dance and music alive with our youth. We believe that Mariachi music will live forever in our community through our performances. MV Mariachi has performed at dozens of events and festivals all over Washington State. Mount Vernon School District recently hired Director Ramon Rivera who has expanded the program to include two Folklorico Classes and four high school Mariachi Classes. We are excited to see how our program continues to expand!
