Description

The Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Los Camperos—under the direction of visionary and traditionalist Nati Cano and comprised of the finest musicians from Mexico—takes the stage for Fiesta Navidad, a rousing Christmas celebration for young and old alike. Lively music and colorful costumes combine for a magical experience as the artists celebrate the traditional fiesta of La Posada (the 400-year-old traditional reenactment of Joseph and Mary’s pilgrimage to Bethlehem). The afternoon culminates with an audience sing-along of seasonal favorites and carols, including “Feliz Navidad” and “Noche de Paz” (“Silent Night”).
