Russell Hill Rogers Musical Evenings at San Fernando Cathedral
The Russell Hill Rogers Musical Evenings at San Fernando Cathedral invites visitors and residents to enjoy at no cost the experience of an intimate musical performance in one of the city’s historic treasures. In 19 years from its conception inspired by Father David Garcia, these concerts have become a cultural treasure of San Antonio downtown and great attraction for cultural tourism. This series was designed after the European model of free concerts in historic destinations like Venice, Florence, and Amsterdam. Our Sunday evening concerts entice listeners to explore the location of several buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places. All listeners are invited to meet the artists at the catered dessert reception following every concert. The next season features: Ukranian pianist Vadym Kholodenko, winner of the gold medal and all special prizes at the Fourteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2013; Janoska Ensemble from Vienna performing classical and original compositions, violinist Tim Fain, best known for his work with Phillip Glass. In January, MBAW celebrates African American heritage with SA DreamWeek with a performance by two young African American sopranos, Icy Simpson and Veronica Williams.
