Conjunto in the Community


To support Conjunto in the Community, a program that started as a grassroots endeavor and is now in its 13th year of offering low-cost musical instruction on the traditional instruments of Conjunto music: the European button accordion and Mexican bajo sexto. This distinctly South Texas genre is the music of working-class families that is passed down from one generation to the next. In essence, the Conjunto Heritage Taller seeks to keep Conjunto music alive through weekly lessons to people of all ages; free community performances; and the creation of a sense of community through our own events and jam sessions.
