LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING---AT SPC: A NEWS REPORT ON A LANDMARK SEASON OF SERVICE FOR THE GLOBALLY-MINDED SAN ANTONIO SYMPHONY INCLUDES ST. PHILIP'S COLLEGE’S TRIUMPHAL TRICENTENNIAL EVENT WITH PRAIRIE VIEW A&M UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT DR. RUTH SIMMONS
A news report on the 2018 season of service for a globally-minded institution includes St. Philip's College.
The institution is San Antonio Symphony. The report on its season of service is San Antonio Symphony’s 2018-19 Season Promises ‘A Journey Around The World’ by Rivard Report arts and culture writer Nicholas Frank.
St. Philip's College is featured as the photo subject in the online report. According to the caption to the image by Rivard Report photographer Bonnie Arbitter, "Sebastian Lang-Lessing, the San Antonio Symphony's music director, conducts at San Antonio's Eastside Tricentennial Celebration at St. Philip's College in May."
In capturing highlights from the symphony's upcoming 30-week season, the Rivard Report team reflected on the Symphony's premiere Tricentennial performance opportunity---San Antonio’s Eastside Tricentennial Celebration and Keynote Presentation featuring Dr. Ruth Simmons May 3 and hosted at the college by St. Philip’s College President Dr. Adena Williams Loston. The event was a triumphant homecoming for the symphony team. The 23-season San Antonio Symphony in Residence project at St. Philip’s College (1988-2011) is the college’s longest community engagement project with an arts-sports-entertainment industry partner. For the return performance and first performance at the college by symphony conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing, Lessing and his team treated the audience that included SPC Choir performers to a rare gem for the intellect---one of the few full-symphonic performances of Lift Every Voice and Sing anyone is likely to hear.
