Come behind the scenes with VivaFest and our 2014 mariachi and folklorico conference, concerts and national policy forum on the arts, hosted by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. The music you hear was graciously provided by Maestro Jose Hernandez and Mariachi Sol de Mexico. Maestro Hernandez was the music director for the 2014 music workshops. Maestros Maria Luisa Colmenarez and Jose Tena served as the directors of ballet folklorico workshops, ably assisted by Maestra Rosalia Novatny. The 2014 VivaFest was produced by the Mexican Heritage Corporation, Marcela Davison Aviles, CEO and Executive Producer.
Support for VivaFest is provided in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs, the TomKat Charitable Trust, the Hewlett Foundation, the Union Bank Foundation, Southwest Airlines and the Packard Foundation.
