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.

An Austin-based choral group is planning their San Antonio Christmas performance.  The group is Conspirare, and their Art Director, Craig Hella Johnson, describes the group this way:

"A musical family of singers who come from all over the country. From New York and Minneapolis and Seattle and some small places in between, and certainly we have some in Austin also."

An unusual new production at the Tobin's Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater debuts Thursday, Feb. 11.  It's called The Amish Project, and it's not exactly a formulaic Broadway comedy. 

"I would say there are very light moments," says star Sarah Gise. "It's certainly not overly dramatic because the incident itself was dramatic enough."

The incident she's talking about is both the cornerstone to the play, and a very dark piece of history.

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."
