Mariachi Veritas de Harvard

Purpose Statement

Mariachi Veritas de Harvard, like all Mariachi ensembles, perform traditional Mexican music. The sounds of trumpets, violins, guitars and the guitarron (bass guitar) combined with singing voices and the culture it represents make up the essence of the Mariachi sound. This is beautiful music that can range from very simple to sophisticated, from loud and lively to somber and soft, from old to new, and from and from regional to universal. Because Mariachi music has a special place in the hearts of many members of Harvard and the surrounding community, because we would like to contribute to the musical and cultural diversity available in the area, (and because it is simply great music!), Harvard students have come together to perform this music since the 2001 school year. We are the first student Mariachi in the East Coast.
