Classical Spotlight: Opera & more

Join us on Classical Spotlight this afternoon @ 2pm for everything happening in and around San Antonio.
Tomorrow through Sunday it's the new production of Madama Butterfly with the San Antonio Opera, directed by John de Lancie. Take a look at his conversation with host John Clare:

Ranging from the simple strophic styles of the classical period to the mature romantic style of Brahms, Angela Malek & friends trace the history of the Lied and its ties to land and poetry in the German culture. A demonstration on the accompanying Viennese grand piano will also be included. Sunday afternoon @ 3pm at Laurel Heights United Methodist Church.

Also Sunday afternoon, the Mid Texas Symphony and David Mairs present Czech it out @
Jackson Auditorium on the TLU campus in Seguin, starting at 4pm. On the program is Chopin's E minor Concerto with Di Wu, Piano, a 2009 Van Cliburn Finalist and the New World Symphony by Antonin Dvorak.

Coming up Wednesday, September 16 at 7:30 pm, there's another chance to hear a 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition winner - Silver Medalist Yeol-Eum Son plays a concert at Ruth Taylor Auditorium @ Trinity University.

The Youth Orchestras of San Antonio will bring Eric Booth to San Antonio on September 16 at 6 p.m. for a lively presentation of YOSA's new Music Learning Center and the music education system that inspires it, Venezuela's El Sistema.
