With an international menu of musical masterpieces, the San Antonio Symphony is serving a delectable palette of performances with the start of its new 2016-17 season. ARTS sat down with Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing to get the scoop on what the audience can expect to experience this year.
The San Antonio Symphony, now in its third season at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, will shine the spotlight on 14 awe-inspiring Classics series concerts; a Mozart winter festival; and six eclectic Pop concerts. Talent from around the world will showcase favorites such as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
But if you think the Symphony is all instrumental, then you haven’t experienced a full course of what SAS has to offer. With a notable list of performers ranging from superb pianists and singers to sublime guitarists and aerial performers, the diversity of the San Antonio Symphony’s upcoming session is as culturally diverse as San Antonio.
“San Antonio is like a sponge of cultural influence. That’s … what we try to embrace in our seasons -- to show how rich the world is and how rich the culture is,” Lang-Lessing said.
