Show Description:

H.E.B. presents Steeven Sandoval in concert at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre for the third consecutive year. Steeven Sandoval’s live stage performance will commemorate the historic Cinco de Mayo celebrations which have been important to San Antonio for more than one hundred and fifty years.

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the triumph of the Mexican army against the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. General Ignacio Zaragoza, the Mexican commander of that battle, was a native of Goliad, Texas. This triumph made Zaragoza a hero in both Texas and Mexico — a key reason why Cinco de Mayo is so meaningful in San Antonio, where it is celebrated with great music and folklore.

For this year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration, Steeven Sandoval, one of the most highly acclaimed mariachi vocalists in the world, brings a repertoire specially tailored to satisfy the most demanding mariachi connoisseurs and one that features traditional rancheras, syncopated huapangos, romantic boleros and classic sones jaliscienses.

Besides his signature song “Por Amor” and selections from his latest album 100 Litros de Tequila, Steeven will pay homage to the charreria mexicana tradition with songs like “Mi Fiesta Charra” and “El Toro Coquito.”

After 14 years as primera voz for the legendary Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán – now a solo artist in his own right – Sandoval proudly returns to San Antonio, a city where mariachi music is greatly respected, where it is taught from middle school to colleges and universities, and where for the last 25 years Cynthia Muñoz, President of MPR, has produced the internationally renowned Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza.

Steeven Sandoval, known as “La Voz del Mariachi,” is considered to be a charro cantor, an honorable reference to a person who represents the true spirt of Mexican folklore and one who is capable of interpreting mariachi music in its most traditional form through voice and performance. Sandoval delights his audiences with grace, elegance, humility and gratitude, and is known for delivering each song with sincere emotion that frequently brings his fans to tears.

Sandoval will be accompanied by San Antonio-based Mariachi Azteca de América, featuring a special guest appearance by Edcouch/Elsa native Nathania Flores, 2018 Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza Grand Champion Vocal Winner.

Steeven Sandoval’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration is a production of MPR, producers of the 25th Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza. H.E.B. is the presenting sponsor of the event with additional support from
