Recorded live at San Fernando Cathedral, Akiko Fujimoto says the venue was beautiful, artistically and historically. “San Fernando Cathedral was built during the baroque period,” she points out, “so there could not be more perfect venue for this music to be performed by the San Antonio Symphony.”</p> Wed, 18 Dec 2013 17:47:48 +0000 Texas Public Radio 23770 at http://tpr.org Celebrate "A Baroque Holiday" On KPAC With The San Antonio Symphony San Antonio Mastersingers, Symphony Celebrate Holiday Season http://tpr.org/post/san-antonio-mastersingers-symphony-celebrate-holiday-season <p>The San Antonio Symphony’s holiday season is winding down, but there's yet another performance that maybe you shouldn't miss.
