The Granada Theatre’s Holiday Spectacular continues at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, with the colorfully festive performance, A Merry-Achi Christmas, from two-time Grammy Award-nominated Mariachi Sol De México® de José Hernández.

Crossing culture and genre categories this holiday season, the Granada Theatre Concert Series brings this performance to the stage for the enjoyment of all members of the Santa Barbara community.

The holiday show features seasonal songs performed in the energetic style of traditional Mexican mariachi. Sol de México de José Hernández headlines the performance, accompanied by America’s first all-female Grammy-nominated Mariachi, Reyna de Los Angeles.

Formed by Jóse Hernàndez in 1981, Sol de México® was created to reflect the vision of an inspiring, artistic mariachi ensemble. Representing a treasured cultural heritage, Sol de México® is a dynamic team.

To mirror the romance, serenity and cultural tradition, Sol de México® offers traditional mariachi sounds embellished with contemporary passion and powerful new rhythms.

This program will be conducted in Spanish.

Tickets range in price from $24-$69, and are available through the Granada Theatre's box office, 899-2222. Dates and times are subject to change.  

These holiday performances are part of the Granada Theatre Concert Series, sponsored by Montecito Bank & Trust.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.
