Ritmo y Canción: Celebrating 300 Years of San Antonio’s Historic Missions

When: Sun., May 20, 4-5:30 p.m. 2018

To celebrate the city’s 2018 Tricentennial, the San Antonio Choral Society has commissioned a new choral work entitled El Camino de las Misiónes (The Road of the Missions) by renown composer James Syler. Syler’s hybrid work captures native, Spanish and Mexican cultures by including authentic native Indian musics and traditional Western musics. Other musical works in the concert will pay homage to various aspects of the missions, their iconic bells, daily life, and liturgical celebrations. Specialists from the region will be employed to provide unique and authentic instrumental accompaniment.
