On Christmas Eve, tune to KPAC 88.3 FM and KTXI 90.1 FM for a special program, “A Baroque Holiday,” featuring the San Antonio Symphony, led by Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto. 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.”
