Celebrate the holidays mariachi-style when the Tower Theatre Foundation brings Bend “A Merry-Achi Christmas” in a colorful and traditional Mexican holiday celebration Tuesday, December 9, at 7:30 pm. It’s an evening full of seasonal songs, dance, and festive merriment headlined by the nation’s top mariachi band Sol de México de José Hernández. Formed in 1981, this twice Grammy-nominated ensemble of thirteen musicians and vocalists embody the spirit of Mexico, its people and musical traditions. The group will perform Christmas favorites from the U.S. and Mexico, including “White Christmas,” “Silent Night,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “O Holy Night,” and an instrumental selection from “The Nutcracker Suite.”
Bend Surgery Center is the title sponsor of the CenterStage Series. Showcase sponsor is Mt. View Heating, with supporting sponsors Deschutes Brewery and Central Oregon Radiology. Performance Night Sponsor is Drake Restaurant. The featured on-tap beer pairing for the night is Deschutes’ Jubelale, whose label this year features an original design by Bend artists Lori and Lisa Lubbesmeyer. After the show, the Lubbesmeyer twins will sign Jubelale 2014 posters featuring a couple sledding in a shimmering winter landscape.
