San Benito Community Center to host Cinco de Mayo Concert

SAN BENITO — Splashes of emerald green and sapphire blue whirl into the air.

The glittery popping of accordion music, energetic classical guitars cutting through the air, and the carefully crafted sounds of brass instruments will come together tomorrow night at the Cinco de Mayo Concert.

Several music and dance groups from San BenitoHigh School, including the Flamenco Ensemble, Conjunto Esperanza and Folklorico Azteca, will provide the entertainment. The concert will take place at the San BenitoCommunity Center at 210 E. Heywood St. from 6 to 7 p.m. It’s free and open to the public.

The event is being sponsored by the city of San Benito and organized by Henry Sanchez, principal of San BenitoHigh School.

Sanchez said he wanted to give the school district’s numerous music and dance groups a chance to share their talent with the community.
