Fiesta Pops

His nickname aside, 10-year-old mariachi Sebastien “El Charro de Oro” de la Cruz is nothing if not humble. “I’m like any other kid,” he told the cameras on America’s Got Talent last year, “but I sing love songs.” The San Antonio native wowed Howie, Sharon, and Howard over and over again with his outsized voice, perfect pitch, and grownup lyrics matched only by his gentlemanly manners. Within his vocal reach are classics such as “Bésame Mucho,” “La Charreada,” and “Granada,” though he also is known to switch things up with his own take on “New York, New York.” The half-pint heartbreaker is joined by some of San Antonio’s biggest names in Latin music and dance: Mariachi Campanas de America, the only mariachi band to have memorabilia displayed in a Hard Rock Cafe, and the Guadalupe Dance Company, who have been seen everywhere from the Today show to Despierta América.<p> #####Beethoven & Sibelius

Guest pianist Andreas Bach takes to the ivories during two evenings that focus on the complex and meditative pieces of two historic and time-honored composers. Hailed by the New York Times back in 1987 for his ability to express moods “from the inside out,” Bach remains a master of both technical skill and subtle coloration. After a subdued opening, Bach shines on Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, fluttering across the keys with a magisterial grace to intersperse feelings of joy with those of urgency. Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 ushers the evening out, characteristically atmospheric, but drawing on the brassy call and epic violin collection of Finland’s national bird, the Whooper Swan.<p>

San Antonio Symphony

Although symphonic concerts could be heard in San Antonio all the way back in the 1880s, the formation of the San Antonio Symphony—the city's first formal orchestra—didn't happen until 1939. It was then that Max Reiter, a native of Italy, was forced from his career and home by a freshly established anti-Semitic policy. Reiter boarded a ship for New York, found the city teeming with exiled musicians like himself, and therefore purchased a train ticket to the South. There, San Antonio's leaders invited Reiter to conduct a demonstration concert for a crowd of 2,500. The success of that initial impression led to the formal founding of the Symphony and an inaugural concert just five months later. Today, Sebastian Lang-Lessing stands where Reiter once stood, leading a full ensemble of 75 musicians with a baton hand honed across the globe.
