The San Antonio Wind Symphony will present its fifth concert of the season on Sunday afternoon, April 26th, at 5:00 pm, in the auditorium at Stevens High School in the Northside Independent School District. The concert is open to the public free of charge.
The program pays tribute to both the rich musical heritage found in San Antonio's Hispanic culture and the wonderful time of the year - Fiesta! Included on the concert will be Genaro Codina's patriotic Zacatecas March and Jose Pablo Moncayo's Huapango (dance music). One of two featured works, H. Owen Reed's La Fiesta Mexicana is the result of a Guggenheim Fellowship to study music in Mexico. The other is Aaron Copland's El Salon Mexico, a musical depiction of a dance hall in Mexico City and makes extensive use of Mexican folk music. The program is rounded off with two paso dobles - Pasqual Marquina's La Gitano del Albaicin and Terrig Tucci's Lola Flores.
The Wind Symphony is grateful to Mr. Robert Rubio and Stevens High school for the gracious use of their wonderful auditorium. We hope to see you there!
