We were so honored to welcome ICSOM Chairman Bruce Ridge back to San Antonio! Bruce shared his eloquent message of positivity and community with musicians, staff, volunteers and local media this week.
Every holiday season, musicians of the San Antonio Symphony, along with their students, children and other musicians from the community, take music directly to those who can't come to us. Last year, we performed at Haven for Hope, the Cyndi J. Krier Correctional Facility, the Bexar County Jail and Santa Rosa Childrens Hospital, among others.
In 2007, the San Antonio Symphony Players Association presented a benefit concert for the San Antonio Food Bank, raising over $2500. In 2011, SASPA did it again, raising nearly $2000, enough to feed over 15,000 individuals!
