For $20, today’s Groupon gets you one platinum-level seat to "An Acoustic Evening with Jon Anderson (lead singer of Yes)" accompanied by the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio on March 14, 2011, at the Majestic Theatre (a $45 value).
Hosted within the ornate confines of the Majestic Theatre, a San Antonio mainstay since its construction in 1929, the show combines the craft of Jon Anderson, the lead singer of prog-rock band Yes, with the stellar musicianship of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio. The platinum-level seat guarantees patrons a prime location for both close views of the performers and excellent sound. Jon Anderson spends the evening charming the audience with a combination of new original music and Yes hits like “Roundabout.” The technical and passionate young musicians of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio provide a lush orchestral backdrop and flourish to Jon Anderson's songs, collaborating to fill the theater with rich aural delight. Wreathed in gilded accouterments, the cavernous theater comfortably embraces each of its guests under a machine-projected cloud-festooned ceiling.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio
There are six orchestras in YOSA's orchestra program: the YOSA Prelude Strings, Capriccio Stings, Sinfonietta Strings, Symphony, Philharmonic, and Flute Choir. Although the Philharmonic draws in the most talented students in the region for professional-level concerts, all the orchestras guide students toward an enriched understanding of the world and the music within it. Together, they benefit more than 1,500 young people in the region—through direct involvement with the orchestra and through offshoot programs such as the free after-school instruction sessions on the west side.
