Fiesta Pops

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2011-04-21

Another Fiesta may have drawn to a close, but two official Fiesta events are still on the horizon (so don’t put your medals back in the safe just yet). While the Miss San Antonio Scholarship Pageant (a precursor to the Miss Texas and Miss America pageants and reportedly the oldest continuous pageant in Texas) doesn’t occur until June 18, Fiesta Pops is right around the corner. Presented by the San Antonio Symphony, Fiesta Pops unites Campanas de America (the only mariachi band cool enough to have an instrument on display at the Hard Rock Café), the festively costumed Guadalupe Dance Company, and the Rick Cavender Band (SA’s “favorite party band”) in a pop-centric program conducted by Ken-David Masur. $11.75-$64.75, 8pm Fri, Apr 22; 8pm Sat, Apr 23; The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, sasymphony.org, majesticempire.com.
