‘All sorts of emotions’ | Sons of Tejano music legend Emilio Navaira to perform his greatest hits with live orchestra

The concert is this Sunday, March 10 and starts at 8 p.m. at the Tobin Center.

SAN ANTONIO — Viva Emilio! Happening Sunday, is a tribute concert for Tejano legend Emilio Navaira. His son’s Emilio IV and Diego will be performing at the Tobin Center with the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA).

Behind the sounds are musicians that are part of the YOSA Philharmonic. YOSA Music Director Troy Peters said they are the best high school and college age musicians in the San Antonio area.

“It is going to be a chance to hear these fabulous Tejano songs,” he said. “It is also great for the young musicians of YOSA to get in touch with San Antonio culture.”

Peters added this will bring a whole new energy level.

“They get to connect with the kind of music a lot of their parents or grandparents loved, and connect it to their own work,” Peters added.

Emilio IV and Diego Navaira have been practicing for Sunday’s concert. The two brothers spoke with KENS 5 via Zoom from Nashville.

“There is nothing I am too anxious about other than hearing it with the orchestra and making it like ten times more emotional,” Emilio said.

“It has been a while since we have done a tribute to our dad in our hometown in San Antonio,” Diego added. “For us pairing that with our father’s songs, who is not with us anymore, there is all sorts of emotions and nostalgic feelings.” 

The two are artists and record music. They are part of a group called ‘Ready Revolution.‘ This tribute concert is rare and special. They will be performing their dad’s songs.

“I think it is a celebration of my dad and I think that it is celebration of the fans as well,” Emilio said.

“It always gives me chills,” Diego said. “It almost brings me to tears. I just think it takes music which is already emotional, it takes it do a whole other emotional level.”

Hits from their father like ‘Juntos’, ‘Como Le Hare’ and others will be played accompanied with the orchestra.

“I think they can expect to hear the music they grew up on with a slightly different twist to it,” Emilio said. “I still think that they will find themselves dancing in the aisle as well.”

The concert is this Sunday and starts at 8 p.m. at the Tobin Center.  

“They get to connect with the kind of music a lot of their parents or grandparents loved, and connect it to their own work,” Peters added.

Prices range from $25 to $55 and can be purchased at the Tobin Center box office or online.
