How does a chamber group dedicated to modern music fit into a Mozart Festival? The answer is a little like “Singin’ in the Rain.” In that movie, the talkie that Gene Kelly has just made is a flop, and to salvage it the studio decides to turn a black-and-white period piece into the dream sequence of a technicolor musical.

From Mozart to Barbershop to music from the Chitlin' Circuit, we've found that there's a lot going on this weekend. Starting with tonight and tomorrow there's a whole lot o' singin' going on.

"We've brought about 2100 people from all over the country to spend a weekend making music together."

Bryan Lynch is talking about the Barbershop Harmony Convention--which is a member event--but they also perform for the general public.

Chamber group Camerata San Antonio has another mini-tour planned for the weekend.  I caught up with cellist Ken Freudigman rehearsing with the three other members of Camerata San Antonio at University Auditorium at Incarnate Word. The program is called From Prussia With Love.

After six seasons of Winter Festivals, the San Antonio Symphony is finally getting around to Mozart. Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing, speaking to a crowd at the Tobin Center on Wednesday evening before a rehearsal of the latest Las Américas Festival concert, noted that the orchestra was waiting for the more finely tuned acoustics of the Tobin Center to handle the “intimate” sound of Mozart, as compared to their old home, the Majestic Theatre.
