    The WPHS Mariachi Band, Mariachi Juvenil Los Tigres, was a featured ensemble at the NYSSMA All-State Music Conference in December in Rochester. The group submitted an audition recording last spring, and was one of only six ensembles from across New York State invited to perform at the conference.  The performance was incredible and had everyone in the audience on their feet.  Congratulations, Tigers!

    Below is a link to an article in the Journal News featuring our Mariachi Band.  Below are some recordings of the group for your listening pleasure!
