Last winter, the future of the San Antonio Symphony was in doubt, after contract talks between the musicians union and the Symphony broke down. But a few days into the new year, a cash infusion from Bexar County, and the City of San Antonio, not to mention overwhelming public support, helped the San Antonio Symphony finish its season strong. According to the Symphony’s interim executive director, Michael Kaiser, the organization is opening this season $200,000 in the black.

Music, art and even more music — the weekend’s here.

First off, head downtown for a music and dance event that Mike De La Garza says has been popular for more than 60 years at the historic Arneson Theater: Fiesta Noche Del Rio.

“You will hear music and experience dance and costumery from various parts of the world, including Mexico, Argentina, Spain and Texas,” De La Garza said.

As always with the Arneson, the stage is on the other side of the river, creating unanticipated fun for barge-bound tourists.

Over the past two weeks the financially troubled San Antonio Symphony saw its season cut dramatically short, a board chair resign, another chair take over, and now, a re-established season with a new musicians’ union contract.
