Look, you haven’t lived until you’ve heard The Nutcracker live—mariachi-style

On Wednesday, December 13th, mariachi maestro José Hernández brings his traje de charro-donning symphony to the Moore Theatre to serenade Seattleites into this Christmas season. With his incredibly named Merry-Achi Christmas, José and Co. celebrate Mexico’s diverse Christmas traditions with renditions of Mexican and American holiday bangers. It’s colorful! It’s dramatic! It’s an excellent twist on Christmas concerts!

As a fifth-generation mariachi with roots in La Sierra del Tigre, Jalisco, Hernández has spent the last four decades uplifting and advancing the world of mariachi music. He’s a singer and multi-instrumentalist, playing trumpet, violin, guitarrón (a giant six-stringed bass guitar), and vihuela (a smaller five-stringed instrument). Over the years, he’s formed two widely known musical ensembles—Mariachi Sol de México and Reyna de Los Angeles, America’s first all-women professional mariachi ensemble.

Hernández and Mariachi Sol de México have performed for audiences worldwide and collaborated with artists like Selena, the Beach Boys, and Vicente Fernandez. He’s a big deal! Go and swoon to their take on “Silent Night”!
