Second time to see the symphony at the Tobin Center -- once as a classical performance and the next was pops. Both visits were as couples. Orchestra is first class and does a tremendous job. Both performances were introduced and provided detail for even more enjoyment. Theater is very comfortable and the staff does a great job in seating and are all very personal and friendly. Parking grarage and theater entrance well equipped for handicapped. You will be well pleased nd look forward to a return visit.

We attended a performance of Handel’s Messiah performed by the San Antonio Symphony. The program opened with a brief introduction to the Messiah before the music started. Although I’m very familiar with the piece and have heard it performed live before, I thought this was a good idea in case there were people in the audience who weren’t familiar with it. This performance was held in a church rather than in the concert hall where I’d seen them play a Tchaikovsky symphony a few years ago, so it was performed in the type of setting that Handel had originally written it for. I think the acoustics might have been better in a concert hall, since the instrumental music overpowered the vocal soloists in some places. What stood out for me in this performance was that it was the first time that I’ve heard a male counter-tenor sing the alto solos, which is how it was performed in Handel’s time. This attention to historical accuracy impressed me. I will be making a point to check the Symphony’s schedule on future visits to San Antonio to see if there will be any performances while I’m here.

If the symphony is scheduled when you are in San Antonio, I urge you to take advantage of our orchestra. Although I have only gone to the classical series I am positive the pops concerts are an equally wonderful evening. We buy season tickets every year and hate to miss a concert when we have a conflict. This year the symphony will be featuring and a part of the Brahm's Festival. I recommend without any reservations.

This orchestra, Symphony is a class act and a must see. It is in league with all big city symphony's. The one problem it faces is funding. It has struggled over the past few years and that's a shame. Come out and support the arts and culture in San Antonio. Keep art alive.

Conductor Lang-Lessing has brought new energy and drive to an already excellent orchestra. The programming is varied, yet accessible. Don't miss the extra pre-concert 'talks' an hour before every classics concert for interesting insights into the music and musicians. Also - some members of the orchestra are accessible to meet during intermission.

San Antonio is fortunate to have a talented symphony that offers a diverse schedule throughout the year. Be sure to catch their holiday selections in December.

Lang-Lessing is bringing excitement to our symphony. This years Beethoven festival is a good example of his influence. We attended the performance of No. 1 & No. 3, and enjoyed the performance thoroughly. In addition to the music, attending the symphony allows you to explore the intricate decorations which adorn the Majestic Theatre's interior. Because the venue is small, even the less expensive seats are good, making this an affordable experience.

Mahler's 9th was a concert packaged for a season ticket holder. Knowing Mahler was not entertaining, I went. I also invited a friend over 75. There are massive street blockages in downtown San Antonio, but we finally arrived at the Tobin Center Parking garage and parked on the 4th floor only to learn the elevator was inoperable and we had to do stairs then walk 2 blocks. The Tobin Center itself is fairly well laid out. But the performance then announced there would be no intermission.
Previously I had taken children to Jurassic Park concert by the SA Symphony and it was horrible.

I was able to relish in our SA Symphony while experiencing the Tricentennial Celebration.
Sebastian Lang-Lessing and Ana Maria Martinez along with the SA Symphony were amazing. Such beauty and culture in our heritage rich city....Everyone must take time and enjoy what our beautiful city has to offer. I was moved beyond belief. Bravisimo!
