  • San Antonio, TX

The Conjunto Heritage Taller (CHT) is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of traditional Conjunto music through instruction and performance. CHT offers low-cost classes on the button accordion and bajo sexto to students of all ages and seeks performance opportunities at community events. CHT’s student base is intergenerational, ranging in age from 7-80, and its motto is “Música Tradicional for Youth of all Ages”. Our vision is that this music, born in this region by the melding of the European accordion and the Mexican bajo sexto, be afforded folk music status and be enjoyed globally.
