Christine Lamprea, a Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) alum and former student of San Antonio Symphony principal cellist Ken Freudigman, returns to San Antonio this week with a world premiere tucked into her cello case. She’ll be performing composer Jeffrey Mumford’s concerto titled of fields unfolding...echoing depths of resonant light.

The weekend's upon us and we've found fun for bird lovers, music lovers and those who love where music, food and dance come together. First off, how about having a Flamenco Friday? Here's Paula Sullivan talking about where you can do just that.

"Carmen's de la Calle is a global type restaurant which features live music."

Live Flamenco music and dance created right there in front of you.

Something different is happening this weekend at a San Antonio Museum of Art Exhibition. First, SAMA's Katie Luber talks about the exhibition itself -- it's called 28 Chinese

"That features works by 28 contemporary Chinese artists working today," she said.

The expansive exhibition has a huge variety of art.

The San Antonio Symphony and Ballet San Antonio are teaming up for another big project. That project is one of of the most popular ballets in dance history—Swan Lake, wherein a maiden’s been turned into a swan by way of a spell. Stager Dominic Walsh picks the story up there.

"The only way this spell can be broken is by an act of true love, and so she must find a prince who will love her and be faithful."

She finds one but then an evil player creates a costly deception.

The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts turns one-year old this month. San Antonio's performing art and architectural gem provides a space for several organizations. What impact has the new institution had on the arts living under its roof?
