Musical Bridges Around the World has tickled ears and dazzled ocular orbs for 13 years with classical, jazz, and folk concerts that contribute to San Antonio’s cultural heritage and vibrant musical scene. The concert showcases dexterous extremities, starting with Golden Fingers, a six-member pianist group that weaves intricate keyboard melodies with their collective 12 hands, 60 fingers, and one bottle containing Mozart’s ghost. The group performs in ever-changing permutations before capping off their tour de force with a six-pianist interpretation of Franz Liszt’s Hexameron. Golden Toes, a group of four ballet dancers, will perform the world premier of new comedic ballet Fables, which is inspired by Aesop’s fables and created with children in mind by acclaimed choreographer Elena Kunikova. The ballet draws kids into beautiful dancing while keeping them onboard with narration, video projection, musical accompaniment, and a thorough, at-the-door cootie screening.
McAllister Auditorium offers more than 1,000 seats in a two-tier proscenium theater, giving show-goers the option of floor- or balcony-level seating. Included parking helps visitors avoid the hassle of inconvenient carpooling or having to buy a ticket for the minivan.
Children ages 5–12 are admitted free with an adult ticket purchase. No children younger than 5.
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.
