The Colorado Symphony is holding a one-night event this October that fans of Selena will want to attend.
Selena Quintanilla's legacy is being honored in a tribute performed by the Colorado Symphony on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 7:30 p.m. at the Boettcher Concert Hall. This one-night tribute to the "Queen of Tejano Music" will be led by guest conductor Christopher Dragon and feature vocalist Isabel Marie Sánchez.
Sánchez, who is just 15 years old, has been singing since she was two years old and was personally selected by the Quintanilla family to sing “No Me Queda Mas” at the 35th Annual Tejano Music Awards 2015. Sánchez is currently signed with Q-Zone Records with Selena’s father, Abraham Quintanilla.
Tickets are available today, June 21, through the event's website, so make sure you get your tickets before they sell out!
Selena was an icon, and her music is beloved by millions worldwide. Her hits – including “Dreaming of You,” “Como la Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “No Me Queda Más,” and “I Could Fall in Love" – will be performed with a full orchestra.
Concertgoers can expect to hear some of Selena’s most famous tunes performed in an emotional tribute to the late star, who died at age 23, far before she had reached her prime and full level of stardom. She was referred to as the "Mexican Madonna" and her contributions to music and fashion are still revered today.
This one-night event is a special opportunity to celebrate the life of Selena, her music, her culture, and her legacy, as well as to welcome a new rising star to the musical world. This event is in partnership with the Mexican Cultural Center. To this day, Selena is the top-selling female artist in Latin music and her presence lives on.
