Introducing Mariachi Los Soberanos

9-11-2016-9-08-25-pm

Mariachi Los Soberanos in front of Mission San Juan

one of the five UNESCO world heritage sites in San Antonio.

 

Mariachi goes back hundreds of years.  Most of the sound we hear today is from the 19th century.  Mariachi Los Soberanos consists of young, talented individuals with years of experience in the music industry, performing arts, and public relations. Each member has played for over seven years, and contributes their musical knowledge achieved from performing with other groups and studying with different masters in this area. From the European influence of the violins, trumpets and a classical guitar to the rustic hybrid adaptation of the vihuela and guitarrón from classical versions of the guitar and bass, Mariachi Los Soberanos offers the whole instrumental gamma of resonance variety in modern mariachis. 

 

San Antonio USACCRA Chapter

29-july-2016-usaccra-san-antonio

On July 29th the local San Antonio USACCRA Chapter sponsored a memorial service at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.  This was the second annual service.  Last year our first one was very small.  We were thrilled to have such a great turn out this year.

Each year we select a representative Chaplain and Chaplain Assistant who is laid to rest at the Fort Sam Houston Cemetery.   We honor their memory on behalf of the thousands of Chaplains and Assistants who have served our nation from the American Revolution until today.  This year our attendance was bolstered by a great turn out of active duty Chaplains and Assistants.  Also, we were pleased to have family members of our two honorees, Chaplain Conrad Walker and SSG Manuel Barrera.  We also received excellent support from the National Cemetery administration and the MSD organization.
