  • SA’s centuries-old missions have been a traditional regional and national draw, but World Heritage status is expected to draw a global audience.

As the San Antonio Missions were recently designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, duh) local composer Charlie Hill has written a nine-minute piece that will embody the five historical landmarks located along the San Antonio River, entitled "The Missions." 

The world premiere of the piece, published by San Antonio based Print Music Source, will be free and open to the public, taking place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 24 at Concordia Lutheran Church (16801 Huebner Road) and will be performed by the San Antonio Symphonic Band as part of their Official Fiesta Event concert entitled "From The Missions To Fiesta."
