Mariachi music has always been a part of Christian Ponce’s life and now he has made it his career. Ponce has taken the helm of the mariachi group at Woodlands High School, an opportunity he says he enjoys.
“I grew up in a Mexican household, so this music is a bit like bread and butter to me. I used to listen to this music growing up, my parents used to play it on the weekends while they were cleaning or cooking,” Ponce said. “It’s always stuck in my mind and I’ve always wanted to be a part of that world and luckily this is where I got the chance and I jumped at it.”
