PASCO, WA - A local middle school is tracing the vibrant history of Latino music. It sounds like a history lesson, but it's a fun one!
About 200 kids from Ellen Ochoa Middle School in Pasco are working together to put on "Viva La Musica," all to help pay for their annual field trip to Seattle!
The show was written and produced by Ochoa Middle School Choir Teacher Heidi Nelson. "Viva La Musica" explores Latino musical influences in America across the ages.
"I think it's important for us to have something like this so our kids and family can related to the type of music, and know the history, of where the music came from and how it developed to what it is now," described Jacqueline Ramerez, Principal of Ellen Ochoa Middle School.
"Viva La Musica" features songs from popular Latino artists including Selena, Marc Anthony and Carlos Santana.
If you missed the show Friday, you can still catch it Saturday at 2PM at the Ochoa Middle School gym.
Tickets are five dollars for adults and two dollars for children 12 and under.
