From Bernstein to Piazzolla

The final chapter of the Las Américas Festival is a smorgasbord of sounds and styles. Two of legendary composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein’s masterpieces are presented: his symphonic suite from the Oscar-winning film On the Waterfront and his Chichester Psalms, featuring the San Antonio Symphony Mastersingers. Tango-king Astor Piazzolla’s concerto for bandoneón, Aconcagua and Arturo Márquez’s Danzón No. 2 add Latin zest to the proceedings. $25-$96, 8pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Cir., (210) 223-8624
