For the fifth time, McAllen High School’s mariachi ensemble is the best in the state. McAllen High School’s Mariachi Oro group performed its way to first place this past weekend at the state finals of the competition put on by the Texas Association of Mariachi Educators in the Dallas suburb of Grand Prairie.
Also, Nikki Rowe High School’s ensemble, Mariachi Azteca, placed seventh. It was the second time two McAllen ISD schools finished in the association’s top ten.
