January 30 @ 3:00 pm: The inaugural concert of this new series of concerts. The concert is a memorial and a celebration of the life of Arthur “Art” Winden, offered in admiration and love by friends, students, and colleagues of Art and Mary Ann Winden. Art is remembered not only as a fine musician, but also as a kind, generous, and loving human being. We give thanks for all the efforts made by the many, coming far and near to be part of this day.
February 26 @ 8:00 pm and February 27 @ 3:00 pm: San Antonio Chamber Choir and University of the Incarnate Word Cardinal Singers will present THRESHOLD, features two stunning and unique works. Philadelphia award winning composer Andrea Clearfield has written tse go la (at the threshold of this life). This Tibetan Cantata is inspired by the composer's treks to the restricted and remote
Himalayan region of Lo Monthang, Nepal to study and document indigenous Tibetan music. The work incorporates 5 songs from the gar-glu (court) and tro-glu (common) traditions. Andrew Lloyd, San Antonio composer and organist has written a breathtaking multi-movement work, CHRISTUS, as a Lenten offering. Both composers will be present for these premieres to the San Antonio community.
