Noche de Gala vocalist contest returns this weekend
Posted on 3/9/2018 8:57:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- A total of 17 contestants will take the stage during this year's 33rd Annual Noche de Gala Vocalista Competition. For years, vocalists from numerous South Central Texas communities have converged at Texas Lutheran University's Jackson Auditorium for the annual mariachi singing contest. The contest scheduled for Saturday night is held annually by Teatro de Artes de Juan Seguin.

Yvonne De La Rosa, Teatro's executive director, says the organization this year has created new divisions giving everyone an opportunity to showcase their talents.

"We're really excited. We did bring back our competition piece and also this year, we have new divisions. We have an elementary school division, a middle school division, a high school division and a community/collegiate division. We've been very lucky because of the Seguin High School program. We have a lot of singers who are coming from Seguin this year, which is amazing. We have singers from San Antonio, New Braunfels and San Marcos this year. So we're excited to bring them in," said De La Rosa.

De La Rosa says Mariachi Las Alteñas, the states finest all female mariachi from San Antonio will again provide live music for each vocalista’s presentation.

The evening program will also include a performance by Gabby Ramos, Seguin High School senior and Ballet Folklórico De La Rosa member. Ramos will be performing son de La Negra from the State of Jalisco.

Teatro de Artes de Juan Seguin is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1982. The mission of the group is to promote the Mexican American arts. Proceeds from Noche de Gala will go to help fund the organization’s programs, most of which support children's activities throughout the year.

General admission tickets are $8 each and can be purchased in advance at Davila's BBQ, the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce office or at Teatro's Cultural Center located at 921 W. New Braunfels St. A limited amount of tickets will be sold at the door.
