Ballads of the Borderland

  • St. Mark's Episcopal Church 315 E Pecan St San Antonio, TX, 78205 USA (map)

A cantata for San Antonio: 
Every family has a story to tell. Ethan Wickman's new composition Ballads of the Borderland is a sweeping tale of our cultural history - weaving together powerful texts of John Philip Santos with the spirited stories and artifacts of those who lived the tale and helped mold our cultural mosaic. The work will feature the Children's Chorus of San Antonio, SOLI Chamber Ensemble, Tynan Davis as soloist, and the San Antonio Chamber Choir as they journey through eleven movements portraying the heirlooms and historical interviews of San Antonio's origins. Join us for an evening where the story of many people with a rich and complex heritage converge. Also on the program Wayland Rogers' Homesteaders and Libby Larsen's Rodeo Queen from Heaven.
