Chicago-based Mariachi Sirenas is performing a free concert noon Friday at UW-Parkside.

The University of Wisconsin-Parkside’s Noon Concert Series continues its fall semester schedule this week with a performance by Mariachi Sirenas.

Mariachi Sirenas is Chicago’s first all-female mariachi group. Members say they “hope to plant a seed that will soon blossom into a community of strong women who work together to promote the folkloric arts of Latin America.”

The free performances continue each Friday, featuring:

Oct. 11: Mariachi Sirenas

Oct. 18: European folk music by the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band Trio

Oct. 25: UW-Parkside choirs

Nov. 1: UW-Parkside student recitals

Nov. 8: UW-Parkside Percussion Ensemble

Nov. 15: UW-Parkside flute and brass ensembles

The free concerts take place at noon Fridays in Bedford Concert Hall on the west side of the campus, 900 Wood Road. Note: Parking for the Noon Concert Series is free in Lot B or C, in any unmarked, unmetered parking space. For more information, contact the Rita Box Office at 262-595-2564.
