Salsa Tribute Concert

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
  • 2017 -- A tribute to Oscar Hernandez: performance by Oscar Hernandez
  • 2019 -- A tribute to Luis Conte: performance by Luis Conte

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.
