On Saturday, September 20, the San Antonio Symphony debuts in the lush and acoustically pristine H-E-B Performance Hall at the Tobin. The season opening performance features Grammy-winning opera singer Renée Fleming, a soprano currently operating out of Chicago. Fluent in German and French (and dabbling in Italian), Fleming's bel canto won her a Grammy in 1999 and a National Medal of the Arts in 2012. She also served as the inspiration for the main character in Ann Patchett's PEN/Faulkner-winning novel Bel Canto and sang the national anthem at the 2014 Superbowl.
