Shakespeare, Choral Music, and More Can Be Found at This Eclectic Performance
The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is a versatile, world-class performing arts facility for the nation’s seventh-largest city. A center where our school children receive specialized education opportunities and exposure to extraordinary performances. A new magnet for downtown revitalization, located on the River Walk leading up to the new Museum Reach. And finally, a much-needed home where our resident performing arts groups can grow and thrive.
Situated along the banks of the River in the city’s heart, the historic Municipal Auditorium, with its original facade preserved, has been transformed into a world-class venue. This theatrical icon is once again the pride of the River and a shining beacon of creativity, fine art and downtown development. There is no better place — anywhere — to see and hear a live performance.
This makes it the perfect venue for the The San Antonio Chamber Choir, who will present a bit of theatre and music that has excited audiences throughout the ages. Actors Anna Gangai and Allan Ross will set the scenes from various Shakespearean plays. This will be followed with choral music using the same text from The Merchant of Venice, Sonnet 18, The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Macbeth.
This includes Ralph Vaughan Williams setting of Serenade to Music, Full Fathom Five, The Cloud-Capp’d Towers; as well as Jaakko Mäntyrärvi’s setting of Come Away, Death and Double Trouble, and Frank Martin’s settings of Songs of Ariel.
Performances will take place in Tobin Center's Feik Family Rotunda.
