Spanish Harlem Orchestra
- Why they’re not your typical orchestra: they play salsa and Latin jazz rather than Mozart and Bach
- Where they got their name: band leader Oscar Hernández grew up near Spanish Harlem where a blend of Latin jazz and American pop could be heard playing throughout the neighborhood
- 12: the age Hernández was when he began playing the trumpet
- 2000: the year producer Aaron Levinson approached Hernández, by then a prolific session musician and producer, about forming a Latin jazz group
- Songs you may hear and sway along to: “La Musica Es Mi Vida,” “Como Lo Canto Yo,” “Mujer Divina,” “Baila Latino”
ARTS San Antonio
Although the River City certainly has always had its share of entertainment options, there used to be a surprising drought in performing arts. Luckily, ARTS San Antonio came along to bring cultural magic from around the country to Central Texas. Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet, Ireland’s Celtic Nights, and New York jazz vocalist José James have all graced the venue’s stage to enrich the community. However, ARTS also nurtures and showcases the top talents of the Lone Star State, from hosting local piano virtuosos to teaching visual and performing arts to students and senior citizens.
