San Antonio Symphony

The San Antonio Symphony graced the stage in gowns and tails for a gala concert on March 4th, 2017, under the baton of Akiko Fujimoto. The evening featured guest-soloist Gil Shaham in a performance of Johannes Brahms’s Concerto in D Major for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 77, preceded with works by Dvořák and Beethoven.
