The San Antonio Museum of Art is all about music right now.

Hot on the heels of a recent collaboration with Agarita Chamber Players, the museum has partnered with Alamo City composer Nathan Felix to debut his new piece 4-Harpsichords in Surround Sound.

As with Agarita's recent program, Felix's composition draws inspiration from SAMA's current exhibition, "America's Impressionism: Echoes of a Revolution."

The concert will be introduced by local harpsichord builder Gerald Self, who will give a presentation on the history of the instrument as well as insight into his building process.

Originally planned as a surround-sound performance in SAMA's Great Hall, the concert will be streamed online on Friday due to the current level of COVID-19 cases in San Antonio. An in-person encore performance is planned for Friday, November 12.

Attendees can register online for Friday's concert, and the museum will send an email with links for the stream.

Free-$25 (Pay What You Wish), 6:30 p.m. Friday, September 3, samuseum.org.
