    “Las Estrellas de Ayer- Las Tesoros de Hoy” Exhibit.

    The exhibit will honor Las Tesoros de San Antonio; which, is comprised of four women who were individually renowned performers in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Each of these women grew up in the Westside of San Antonio and were regionally, nationally and internationally famous vocalists. The Esperanza brought these four musical tesoros (treasures) out of retirement to sing and perform again in 2006.

     

    The women of Las Tesoros are Rita Vidaurri, Beatriz Llamas, the late Perla Tapatía and Blanca Rodriguez – four strong mujeres who helped build the foundations for San Antonio’s rich musical cultura during an era of racial segregation and overt sexism and homophobia.

     

    The women have performed with famous artists such as Tin-Tan, Cantinflas and Nat King Cole.

    This exhibit is in conjunction with the CD release concerts on Feb. 7 at 3 PM and 6 PM.

     

    Photos and memorabilia, detailing the mujeres’ experiences as Mexicanas?or Mexicana-Americanas performing in the music industry, will be available to the public starting February 7 through March 26. Exhibit hours are Monday – Friday 10 AM- 7 PM. The exhibit is free but donations are always appreciated.
