Conjunto Halcón is a group made up of students from Los Fresnos High School’s Conjunto program and the students recently performed two classic songs in a video being shared throughout social media.

The performance featured a medley of “Azucar,” a hit song for Los Kumbia Kings in 1999 and “Yolanda,” the 1996 hit song from Jaime Y Los Chamacos. It was filmed during an episode of “Jueves Con Cadena,” a video blog that invites musicians to share not only their talent but their musical experience as well with Luis Cadena, Jr. and friends.

The Conjunto program at Los Fresnos High School has been changing the lives of students along the border since its inception in 2012 under the direction of award-winning accordionist Juan Longoria, Jr. The program “motivates its students to work hard, stay in school, and strive for their dreams, simply by teaching them to play the music that is an integral part of their cross-cultural identity,” according to a 2015 article in Texas Highways magazine.

Conjunto Halcón has earned awards including a rating of 1 under the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Experimental Music Category and the talented young students perform at various cultural arts events across the state throughout the year.
