Mariachi Herencia de Mexico performs at UNLV on Nov. 16.

The UNLV Performing Arts Center is pleased to welcome Mariachi Herencia de México, a group of students from Chicago’s Mexican-American barrios, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16. The group might never have imagined their first CD, Nuestra Herencia, would receive a Latin Grammy nomination, but it did. Now, after releasing their second CD, the musicians are embarking on their first major tour. 

As part of the evening, culinary students from Mohave High School will be offering fresh guacamole and Mexican wedding cookies in the lobby, while students from the Valley High School Ballet Folklórico perform.

Tickets to Mariachi Herencia de Mexico are $50, $40, $30, $20, and can be purchased through the Performing Arts Center box office or by calling 702-895-ARTS (2787). Student rush tickets are $10 each (not inclusive of the facilities fee) and available one hour prior to each event, based on availability and with valid student ID. UNLV faculty and staff discounts also are available.

A $1.50 facilities fee, in addition to the ticket price, is charged on all Performing Arts Center tickets. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
