SAN ANTONIO — Youth Orchestras of San Antonio has announced its next big show set for the spring - they will play a special tribute to the Queen of Tejano music.
YOSA's “Viva Selena!” will be Monday, March 9, 2020. The non-profit organization's top orchestra, the YOSA Philharmonic, will perform Selena Quintanilla-Pérez's greatest hits along with local singer Isabel Marie Sanchez.
The concert will come 25 years after Selena's death.
Each year, YOSA holds a special tribute concert at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. It's part of a pop series that features recreations of iconic records and artists. The lineup of music includes Como La Flor, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, and Dreaming of You.
About 100 musicians ranging in age from middle schoolers to some college students will start rehearsing for the unique collaboration held during Spring Break.
YOSA is a resident company of the Tobin and serves 2,500 students each year. It was the one of only six youth orchestras in the U.S. to receive a 2018 League of American Orchestras’ Futures Fund grant for inventive programming.
Selena fans can expect fun concert activities throughout the evening like contests and photo-ops to kick off the concert.
There's also a "Viva Selena VIP Experience" that includes access to the exclusive concert After Party at El Tropicano Hotel Riverwalk - with complimentary beer, wine, food, music, and dancing with concert VIP's and Selena superfans.
