The Mariachi Pumas encourage UH students who are registered for Fall 2020 at University of Houston to audition for our competition ensemble. Enrolled students with experience in mariachi as a vocalist or musician can download the audition pieces and submit videos to the Director of the Community Arts Academy (CAA) and the Director of the Mariachi Pumas. Please submit a video of yourself performing the first thirty bars of each of the three audition pieces. You can choose any part that you are comfortable playing within each song. Videos can be submitted via private You-Tube or Vimeo link.
To submit an audition email video link, contact information and PeopleSoft Number to Sixto Wagan firstname.lastname@example.org.
To join the Pumas for the entire Fall 2020 season, email with link to audition videos must be submitted prior to 5pm on August 31. We may still accept videos of audition after that date depending upon availability within the ensemble.
Due to safety precautions for COVID-19, we are suspending the open community mariachi rehearsals. We will re-start this opportunity once it is deemed safe for large groups to congregate and perform.
If you are interested in supporting the Mariachi Pumas, and qualify for federal or state work-study, please contact the Director of CAA for information about the Pumas Assistant position.
