The San Antonio Symphony's “Las Américas” festival celebrates the rich variety of music springing from melded cultures of North and South America. Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing kicks the festival off with an evening of concert works from popular music and jazz legends George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, underlining the cross-cultural influence of both with Gershwin’s Latin-themed Cuban Overture and Ellington’s jazz-infused paean to the Persian Empire, Isfahan. The program includes Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue.
