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.

The Tobin Center will ring with music this weekend as the Las Americas Festival continues. 

"Friday and Saturday I'll be performing Barber's Violin Concerto with the Symphony," said San Antonio Symphony Concert Master Eric Gratz. "A very eclectic mix this year. The festival features many composers--Bernstein, Copeland, Piazzolla--and so this is Barber, the All-American Concerto."
