La Viejada de San Jose Musical Director, Luis Xavier Garcia
La Ultima Parada is proud to announce . . .
The sonecitos that comprise La Viejada are well over 500 tunes and include bits of traditional sones, as well as, more current popular songs. In La Viejada de San Jose, new sonecitos have been created especially for La Ultima Parada by local young composer, Luis Xavier Garcia.
They are aptly named, “La Plaza”, “EastSide Llorona”, “Luna y Sol”, “Story & King”, “La Pulga” and “Sal Si Puedes”. Mr. Garcia is a graduate of Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, where he earned his degree in Music Composition and Animation.
He continues his animation studies at Cogswell College in San Jose and hopes to one day score for film. In November of 2019, Luis Xavier will showcase his original compositions while conducting a chamber orchestra at the Festival Cultural Amado Nervo in Tepic, Nayarit.
Please join us in congratulating this young home-grown talent!
