About Our Partners this Season

The DoSeum

The DoSeum is much more than a children’s museum: it’s a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play. The DoSeum offers exhibits, programs, camps, classes, and field trips designed for all learners, encouraging young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy.

This will be the second year that the DoSeum hosts the Made in SA series, which will also feature informational music and instrument tables for attendees to explore after the concert.

Adelante Winds

Adelante Winds enjoys working with living composers and expanding the wind quintet repertoire. The ensemble aspires to challenge itself and its audience to approach music in innovative ways. An expanded and exciting repertoire has allowed the quintet numerous performance opportunities throughout Texas.

Adelante Winds seeks to present concerts that expose audiences to underrepresented composers while fostering a sense of fellowship for socioeconomically disenfranchised communities.

University of the Incarnate Word - International Arts Festival

Join us for the second International Arts Festival at UIW from 3-6 p.m. on March 23, 2024! This year's festival explores connections between faith and artistic expression through three diverse programs: Prokofiev's Visions fugitives with choreography by Violeta De Leon Davila and costumes by UIW's Ashleigh Poteat; Adelante Winds, performing a program of new works by members of the Composers Alliance of San Antonio; and renowned kathak dancers Marami Medhi and Meghranjani Medhi from Assam, India. Free to the public. Light refreshments served.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) provides young musicians of all backgrounds the opportunity to play music together so they can learn, grow, and thrive while connecting with the community.

About the conductor: Troy Peters is the Music Director of YOSA since 2009, conductor of the YOSA Philharmonic, and is also a composer and champion of new music.

San Antonio Zoo

San Antonio Zoo®, operating since 1914, is a non-profit zoological facility committed to securing a future for wildlife. Through its passion and expertise in animal care, conservation, and education, the zoo's mission is to inspire its community to love, engage with, act for and protect animals and the places they live.

The zoo welcomes over a million visitors yearly and is open year-round.

Composers Alliance of San Antonio members participating in this project all visited critters and their care specialists at the San Antonio Zoo to learn more about them and the zoo’s conservation programs. Then, the composers wrote the music for the YOSA Philharmonic orchestra, each piece inspired by the chosen animal, creating a new collective suite.
