Conductor Michael Krajewski slashes his baton through the air like a miniature lightsaber as the San Antonio Symphony performs a collection of intergalactic movie scores during "Star Wars and Other Space Odysseys." The instrumentalists chart a course through John Williams's canonical suite from Star Wars, from the soaring strains of the Star Wars Main Theme to the stately menace of the Imperial March and the melancholy yet magical strings of Yoda's Theme. The expansive Laurie Auditorium seats audiences of up to 2,700, providing ample space for guest of honor Jabba the Hutt to slither down the aisle.

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.
