NEA Jazz Master and three-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. In a rare San Antonio visit, Marsalis will present the same program he played in a 2011 New York Philharmonic concert that the New York Times hailed for its “gracious poise, supple tone, and insouciant swagger.” YOSA Music Director Troy Peters will also conduct Elgar’s popular “Enigma” Variations, a symphonic masterpiece that also contains 14 musical portraits of Elgar’s friends and family. The concert will open with the bluesy strut of American composer Kenji Bunch’s Supermaximum. Don’t miss this evening of exciting music with the YOSA Philharmonic, San Antonio’s very best young
