Mariachi Tesoro de Tucson is a group of young mariachi musicians directed by Jaime Valenzuela, a talented, professional musician and music educator in Tucson, Arizona. He has known most of Mariachi Tesoro's musicians since they were in kindergarten and invited each of them to participate in this exceptional musical and educational experience. Every year since 2007, Mariachi Tesoro participates in the Tucson International Mariachi Conference (TIMC).
Mariachi Tesoro thanks Director,Jaime Valenzuela, and our instructors, Rudy Valenzuela and Chelye Smith, for their tireless efforts in teaching the musicians and for the strong relationships they build with Tesoro families and the mariachi community.
