Performance Saturday

Saturdays, 7 p.m.

Each Saturday night, Texas Public Radio takes you to the stages of San Antonio and South Texas to hear the best in live classical music performance. Performance Saturday features both new and archive recordings from ensembles like the Heart of Texas Concert Band, the Mid-Texas Symphony, USAF Band of the West, and many others, as well as touring performers making their way through South Texas by way of the San Antonio Chamber Music Society, Tuesday Musical Club, and other performing arts organizations. When available, interviews with the artists provide additional context and insight into the performances and the music.

Following the 'concert' broadcast, host Nathan Cone shares music selections from the KPAC library, focusing on new releases.

A last-minute substitution lent some nervous energy to the ETA3 Trio’s performance on October 14 as part of the Tuesday Musical Club’s annual Artist Series. With only a few hours to rehearse, Milana Strezeva took the place of the ensemble’s regular pianist, Tomoko Nakayama, who couldn’t be released from a performance back in the group’s home base of New York.
