Classical Spotlight: March 5

This week we feature several local concerts and a new release from Koch International Classics!

Tonight and Sunday don't miss the Symphony of the Hills in a program, "For the Young and Young at Heart". They'll play Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Smetana and Tubby the Tuba. Conductor Jay Dunahoo, pictured right, spoke with host John Clare about the concert. Find out more here.

Tuesday night, the Olmos Ensemble presents a concert of "Romance and Humor" with special guests, Anne Epperson, piano and Linda Poetschke, soprano. Founder and Artistic Director Mark Ackerman, pictured left, came by the TPR studios and talked to us about the program that includes Robert and Clara Schumann, Francaix and Alfred Bachelet.

Finally, Anne Akiko Meyers, pictured right, has a new cd out from Koch called Smile. It features pieces by Piazzolla, Messiaen, Schubert and traditional folk tunes. She spoke from Carnegie Hall about the new release.

Listen to Classical Spotlight every Thursday afternoon at 2pm on KPAC and KTXI, your classical oasis in San Antonio and the Hill Country.
