The award-winning ensemble MARIACHI QUETZAL was formed in 2008. The members of QUETZAL met while studying at the University of North Texas College of Music. Men, Women, Anglo, Hispanic – QUETZAL is made up of a diverse group of individuals who share a love for performing mariachi music.
QUETZAL is dedicated to entertaining audiences with traditional mariachi music (and a little bit of not-so-traditional music, too). In 2011, QUETZAL was voted Best Latin-Tejano Act in Dallas by the Dallas Observer. They have been featured in performances with the Irving Symphony Orchestra, Mesquite Symphony Orchestra and Dallas Wind Symphony.
