It is the splendor of multiple choirs & brass in this 400th anniversary celebration of Venetian composer Giovanni Gabrieli (d.1612). Special guest artists will include the San Antonio Brass, strings, and the choirs from First Presbyterian Church and St. Paul's Episcopal Church to culminate in a performance of nearly 150 musicians.

Director of the SACS Jennifer Seighman and SA Brass director John Carroll spoke to host John Clare about the concert. "We can't wait until the dress rehearsal to hear all of these musicians in the space," Seighman said.  "It is going to be quite a weekend," Carroll added, "lots of chops needed for the symphony and then this concert!"
