ABC15: Aída Cuevas, ‘Queen of Mariachi,’ to perform with The Phoenix Symphony this April

April 10, 2024

By Nicole Gutierrez


PHOENIX — Aída Cuevas is bringing her “Serenata Sinfónica Mexicana” to the Valley this April!

Affectionately known as the “The Queen of Mariachi,” the Mexican artist will perform with Mariachi Aztlán and The Phoenix Symphony.

Aída Cuevas is joining us on April 12 13th, and 14th, for a really fascinating concert celebrating her 45th anniversary in the music industry,” said Alex Amsel, Associate Conductor of The Phoenix Symphony.

The special collaboration will take place at the Orpheum Theatre.

“We want to always be reflecting what is necessary for our community, we want to provide things and it’s going to be relatable and exciting for them because our mission is always that art is for the people. So, we want to […] collaborate with other organizations that [are] going to bring a certain amount of joy and wonder to the people that we have here in our community,” Amsel told ABC15.


Going to the concert? The Phoenix Symphony’s Prelude will be taking place that night too!

“An hour before the show, we collaborate with this community group called The Harmony Project and they provide music education for kids of all socio-economic backgrounds,” said Amsel. “ [An] hour before the start of the show, you can join us at the Plaza for a big party outside where The Harmony Project is going to be playing some mariachi music so it’ll be a fun time where you can get the night started with a little bit of dancing outside before going in and then the concert will be a real beautiful collaboration between the full symphony orchestra of The Phoenix symphony.”
