In the fall of 2012, the Latin Music Studies area and San Marcos High School started a new tradition in San Marcos: the Salsa Tribute Concert. Each year we identify one individual in the salsa community who has contributed in a significant way to the advancement of this genre.
Our past tributes include:
- 2012 – A Tribute to Tito Puente: performance by Tito Puente Jr.
- 2013 – A Tribute to Celia Cruz: performance by Cita Rodriguez and Eddie Bermudez
- 2014 – A tribute to Larry Harlow: performance by Larry Harlow
This is also a chance for the Texas State faculty, staff and students and the San Marcos community to come together to celebrate this wonderful music.
Join us in 2017 to celebrate Maestro Oscar Hernández.
