I talked to the San Antonio Symphony's Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing today and asked what many in the arts community are wondering: who will be the focus of next year’s music festival?
“Richard Strauss,” revealed Lang-Lessing.
“For me it was just a natural way to celebrate the 75th anniversary with a Strauss festival," he said.
It's the San Antonio Symphony’s 75th year of playing and to get that anniversary started right, he had another big announcement.
“We open with Renee Fleming, so I’m very thrilled that this works out,” Lang-Lessing said.
