Maricahi Orchestra

The Folwell Mariachi Orchestra is a lively and fun ensemble of 7th-8th grade string players that meet during the school day. The repetoire is completely comprised of authentic Mexican Mariachi music. This group focuses on string techniques which include orchestral bowings, tone and pitch production, reading and performance practices. We give concerts in school and in the community in costume and often invite other musicians to join us on guitars, trumpets and singing.
