The San Antonio Symphony, directed by Sebastian Lang-Lessing, starts its season with Chinese superstar pianist Lang Lang. The program includes Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise” and Piano Concerto No. 2 and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4. Unless the private donors who made this possible do it again, this could very well be the Symphony’s biggest night of the year. But wait, there’s more! As John Lennon would say, “The people in the cheap seats, clap your hands. The rest of you …” can fork up $500 for a plate and enjoy a private dinner with Lang Lang. This is how it works: at 6 p.m. there will be a pre-concert reception at Club Giraud; at 7:15 p.m. they’ll pick you up on a bus and take you to the Majestic and VIP seating; at 9:30 p.m. the bus will take you to the Coates Chapel, where you will enjoy an elegant dinner with Lang Lang, receive a gift, and have your reception photo taken with him. Not bad for a night out, if you can afford it. $27-$77, 7:30pm, Wed, Jan 12, Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston Street, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com, VIP concert/dinner tickets: $500. Call Emily at (210) 554-1052.
