ABOUT US

Photography by Genesis

Grupo Folklórico Quetzalén of Sonoma Valley was founded in May of 2008. Currently under the direction of  Victor Ferrer, Quetzalen started as a senior project at Sonoma Valley High School and later became the community’s first Mexican Folk Ensemble.

We offer culturally and academically enriching programs that engage the community through cultural, and artistic programming. We focus on after-school classes, workshops, and performances for local schools, educational programs and non-profit organizations year round.

Our mission is to educate, preserve and promote the splendor of Mexico's traditional dances, music and costumes.

 

Our commitment is to conduct outreach programs for the youth in our community to instill pride of their cultural heritage. 

 

The meaning of the word Quetzalen comes from the “quetzal”, a bird that mayan and aztec cultures described as a symbol of “luminescence and life”.
