JC Community Celebrates Its Local Musicians

Citizens of Jacinto City are always about its Community.  Last Thursday, we saw a packed meeting room of family, friends, and neighbors who came out and celebrated Hispanic Heritage by supporting local music teacher Rodrigo Gonzalez and his students.  Mr. Gonzalez taught the origins of Tex-Mex music and how teaching it to the next generation can help preserve Hispanic music and culture.  He was, then, followed by his students who demonstrated their music skills by playing some of the popular Tex-Mex songs and granting requests from the audience.  

Thanks to the JC Community and Centro Cultural Viva Mexico for a wonderful evening of music and fun!
