“While there is power in happiness, ¡Alegria! also celebrates the resiliency of happiness. Sonia asserts that our differences should bring us together as a community, not divide us.”

"My students and I were able to easily connect with Sonia and enjoyed her enthusiasm for life and music. Students loved singing along. Having a diverse classroom, we enjoyed celebrating Mexican culture and language. We all need some light, love, and creativity right now. Thank you, McCallum Theatre and Sonia for providing this."
