Dancers use their bodies to express emotions, unlike opera singers, who use their voices, and Punchin' Jack, who only uses his fists.

Igudesman and Joo’s "A Little Nightmare Music" on Friday, January 18, at 7:30 p.m.
Slapstick, prop comedy, and (mostly) classical music combine in a show that ex-007 Sir Roger Moore called “the craziest, most hysterically funny music ever” in Vanity Fair.
"Musical Generations" with Lilya Zilberstein and Sons on Sunday, February 24, at 3 p.m.
Russian-born piano virtuoso Lilya Zilberstein is joined by her sons, Anton, aged 16, and Daniel, aged 19. Both teens are accomplished musicians in their own right and have gained international acclaim as Duo Gerzenberg. Backed by the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, the nimble-fingered family takes on Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 7 in F for three pianos—a stately procession of precise piano and sweeping strings—and pieces by Brahms.
"Russian Extravaganza" with Barynya on Sunday, May 19, at 3 p.m.
This New York–based dance troupe performs the traditional dances of Eastern Europe, particularly Russian, Ukrainian, and Romani dances.
Musical Bridges Around the World
Anya Grokhovski has always surrounded herself with music. The daughter of a violinist in the Moscow Philharmonic as well as a doctorate-holding piano performer in her own right, she came to San Antonio to work in UTSA's music department. She brought the music she loved with her—she founded Musical Bridges Around the World to present unique sonic offerings in the city.
Now, more than a decade later, MBAW brings some of the world's finest performers to San Antonio stages. Their concerts and shows ring out in McAllister Auditorium, the 18th-century Cathedral of San Fernando, and in the ears of anyone who truly believes.
