As part of KPAC’s 35th anniversary celebration, this week’s “Performance Saturday” features two piano recitals that were produced in honor of the milestone.

The first half of the program was recorded on March 25, 2018 at the home of Jeffrey Glass, MD, who hosted an intimate gathering of the “Class of 1982.” These classical music fans and donors were instrumental in the early success of KPAC (then at 90.9 FM) by giving of their time and talent, enabling the organization to grow and eventually merge with San Antonio Community Radio to create Texas Public Radio.

Vespers, the traditional late afternoon prayer service, gets an enigmatic twist in a new video by director James Darrah, premiered here, with music from Missy Mazzoli, performed by the spirited violinist Olivia De Prato. The track is from her new album, Streya.
