First ever Alamo Baroque Festival
SAN ANTONIO - The Festival presents historically-informed performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries by internationally recognized artists.
This six day festival will feature free public performances, master classes, and private instruction (by audition).
Creating an early music culture means not just hosting occasional performances by visiting ensembles but the development -- from childhood on up -- of a cadre of local singers and instrumentalists devoted to historically informed performance. Our neighbors in Austin, Dallas and Houston have done this, and so must we. The inaugural Alamo Baroque Festival is the first step in making that vision a reality.
St. Mark's, with its long tradition of great music, its historic and acoustically appropriate nave, and its connections with the great musicians of Europe, is the logical "kernel" of that culture in San Antonio.
And the festival, both in its public events and in its outreach to schools, etc., furthers the St. Mark's mission of feeding those who are hungry for knowledge, meaning, beauty and creativity.
