Dear Friends and Fellow Music-Lovers,
Welcome to Symphony Viva’s 2022-2023 Season! In this 30th Anniversary year of Alamo City Arts, we celebrate the artistic achievements of this wonderful organization by pulling out all the stops for each of our six cycles this season!
To kick off ACA's new partnership with San Antonio's historic Scottish Rite Theatre, Symphony Viva will be joining our partner ensembles in late September to present a star-studded Gilded Gala performance- come hear favorites like Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and the 'Flower Duet' from Delibes' Lakmé with local guest artists Linda Angkasa (piano), Lydia Beasley (soprano), and Jacquelyn Matava (mezzo soprano).
November's Viva concert "Love and Death" highlights the intersection of these two broad themes within the symphonic repertoire- prepare yourself for Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, Bizet's Carmen Suite, and much more!
In March, to highlight the exquisite talents of our musicians, the orchestra will present "Viva Virtuosi", a program devoted entirely to solo and concerto works performed by several of Viva's musicians and our close artistic partners.
To close out the season, we take a journey beyond our world to the land of hobbits with Howard Shore's magnificent film score suite from The Fellowship of the Ring, as well as around our solar system with Holst's magnificent orchestral suite, The Planets.
And who could forget our two full ballets? Alamo City Dance Company's 30th Anniversary Nutcracker and a new production of The Tales of Beatrix Potter will delight you in their storytelling, elegance, and sublime musical scores.
