A complete schedule and other details are available on the event web site fiestadelaflor.com A Note from the EditorI find it heartbreaking to consider what we lost on March 31 1995 when Selena Quin- tanilla Perez was taken from us at the hands of her embittered former fan club president. In her short life of just 23 years Selena earned her place as a bona fide superstar in the world of Tejano music and a source of immense pride in the hearts of Corpus Christians. I personally saw Selena perform live only once on March 8 1995 just 23 days before her tragic death at the grand opening of the Hard Rock Cafe in San Antonio in front of a small crowd of a few hundred. She sang in Spanish and in English her first language and every person in the audience who did not know her music was mesmerized by her incredible talent. Without a doubt Selena was destined to be- come a major star with the mainstream American audience as she had become with millions of Latin music fans in the United States Mexico and around the world. We are blessed to be left with her music and her rich legacy. chris perez ramon ayala clarissa serna and la mafia all performing at fiesta de la flor Weezer and Panic At the Disco to play Concrete Street Saturday June 11 Legendary Alternative band Weezer was formed way back in 1992 in Los Angeles and have since sold over nine million albums in the U.S. and over 17 million worldwide.
