There’s a unique training opportunity coming up for singers in San Antonio.
“I’m not sure there’s ever been a world music symposium in San Antonio before, so Benissimo Music is collaborating with Trinity University and we’re going to put on this wonderful two-day event" said Benissimo Music's Ruth Moreland.
Moreland said there will be master classes and they are bringing in Balkan music specialist Eva Salina Primack.
It’s a music and arts event which has ties to something that happened long ago and far away. Chile’s Salvador Allende was overthrown in coup forty years ago. The Allende period, and its aftermath, has been marked with an unusual metric.
"There was a real soundtrack that went along with the rise of the Allende government," said Trinity University’s David Spener. "And its fall due to the military overthrow, and the long dictatorship that followed it. And that soundtrack was known as la nueva canción, the Chilean new song.”
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will be visiting the Alamo City this week, joining the City of San Antonio to provide more information about the Affordable Care Act.
Sebelius will speak Thursday evening when Trinity University and the Metropolitan Health District host a public event to offer information about the new health care act, much of which takes effect in the next year.
The city previously hosted Sebelius when it unveiled the Por Vida Health Campaign, an ongoing city-wide marketing campaign to get restaurants to offer healthy choices.
It’s the final three days for a stage production at Trinity University that follows the single day of a cab driver in Chicago as he picks up fares in the racially tense and sometimes seedy areas of the Windy City.
While the play calls for 36 characters, Attic Rep took on the challenge of using only seven actors.
The play, "Hellcab," takes place on the day before Christmas in Chicago. The weather is brutally cold, and a cab driver is reporting in at 6:30 a.m. for what will be a 14-hour shift.
Trinity University is unveiling its first-ever wine release, a custom blend that brings an extra benefit to the school.
Winemaker Adam Lee is a Trinity alumnus now living in California's Sonoma County. He’s back in San Antonio to market his wines from the Siduri Winery to vendors across Central Texas -- and to kick off the wine he made specifically for his alma mater.
Lee said the idea came from a conversation with Trinity’s President, Dennis Ahlburg.
