Girls choir hosts Mexico boys choir

July 24, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Sat, 08/02/2014 - 4:00pm

The Texas Girls’ Choir is sponsoring a free concert featuring the Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina, Mexico Boys Choir from San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and the Texas Girls’ Choir Sunday, Aug. 2 at the Texas Girls’ Choir Concert Hall at 4449 Camp Bowie Blvd. in west Fort Worth at 4 p.m.
The Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina has had a long history of musical and cultural exchanges over the past 24 years with the Texas Girls’ Choir. They travel to Fort Worth almost every year to perform in the Metroplex and to be in concert with the Texas Girls’ Choir. The girls have also been to San Luis Potosi to be hosted by the Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina. The boys get permission to travel to San Antonio and Corpus Christi several times during the year to raise funds with their performances.
The Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina was founded in 1969 by its director, Cesar Cervantes Diaz de Sandi. The group consists of young men and boys who love music. They travel throughout Mexico as ambassadors of music and goodwill. During their 45-year history they have traveled throughout North America and to Italy for an audience with the Pope.
They adopted their name from the "Estudiantinas" in Spain that were popular during the 16th century. Originally the Spanish "Estudiantinas" were known as "rascals" who played pranks. But through the years, they were converted into a group with positive social goals and so are the Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina - this is a positive influence on its members.
The boys dress in Spanish Madrigal costumes and sing lively Spanish music - accompanying themselves with guitars, mandolins, bass, accordion and tambourines.
The concert is free, however, donations will be accepted to assist with travel costs and a visit to Six Flags Over Texas for the members of the Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina.
For more information, about the Estudiantina Guadalupana Potosina call the Texas Girls’ Choir headquarters at 817-732-8161 or e-mail TGC@texasgirlschoir.org.
