The TEXAS MUSIC MUSEUM is a treasury containing a unique historical collection that tells the story of the musicians who made Austin the Live Music Capital of the World! Our mission wouldn't succeed without donations from generous people like you. Thank you for your support!

The Texas Music Museum is proud to present “Tejano Orquestas and the Great Tejana Singers,” a new exhibit exploring two unique musical traditions from Texas. It offers in depth portraits of the orquesta, an evolving ensemble mixing together Texas-Mexican music with big band and other popular music styles, and the many important Mexican American female singers who sang with them. The exhibit includes individual panels on Lydia Mendoza, Eva Garza, Carmen y Laura, Chelo Silva, Beto Villa, Isidro López, Orquesta Falcon, Sunny Ozuna, and many others. It also features dresses from Mendoza, Garza, Silva, and Las Hermanas Gonzalez and a hat from Rita Vidaurri.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
