The Texas Woman: Her Heritage in Song

When: Thu., Jan. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2018

Texas history buffs and music lovers alike should find themselves delighted by this offering from soprano Flicka Rahn and pianist/lecturer Ruth Friedberg. Presented, like so many quality offerings already this year, as a part of the celebration of San Antonio’s 300th birthday, the evening of song and story will look at the role of women (of all backgrounds) in our city’s development and culture. A diverse journey, as it must be to achieve what it sets out to, the program will begin with a Native American love song before exploring music with Spanish, German and French roots. From classical compositions to spirituals and cowboy ballads of the Southwest, from corridos to European folk music and everything in between, this program promises a rich look at our unique cultural heritage.

Price: $10
