Veterans Memorial High School Mariachi Toros de Plata recently competed at the Regional Texas Association of Mariachi Educators (TAME) contest hosted in Edcouch Elsa high School. The group was evaluated by 3 judges in various categories such as tone, technique, and showmanship.


Toros de Plata members played their interpretations of Soy la Voz, Te Extraño, and El Fandanguito. They were awarded a Superior (Division 1) rating by all 3 judges. The overall Division 1 rating earned them a spot in the TAME State Finals contest for state ranking.
