Founded by intrepid players from the San Antonio Symphony, Camerata San Antonio’s talented band of performers crafts ear-tickling small-ensemble programs of modern and classical chamber music. Employing a string quartet balanced with the precision of a professional seesawer, “Romance and Rhythm” explores the shimmering melodies of 19th- and 20th-century composers Turina, Ginastera, and Grieg. Alternatively, “An English Christmas” bolsters violins, viola, and cello with the recorder-playing talents of Martha Fabrique and the narration of Deirdre Saravia to present a cycle of yuletide euphonies culled from Great Britain, including a sonic rendition of “A Christmas Carol.” Both concerts take place in three different high-eaved churches throughout the San Antonio area, giving sixty-fourth notes enough space to float out of their instruments before galloping out the building in blind panic.
Though Camerata San Antonio offers $8 tickets for full-time students with ID, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most buyers.
Camerata San Antonio
Founded by cellist Kenneth Freudigman and violist Emily Watkins Freudigman in 2004, Camerata San Antonio brings together a symphonic roster composed of several of the San Antonio Symphony's principal players and more than a few internationally recognized musicians. More than a dozen acclaimed artists might be on-call for a concert during any given season, and the entourage's diverse concert schedule consequently offers plenty of strikingly different small-ensemble performances.
