Tuesday Musical Club presents its 2017-2018 Artist Series for "Music on Tuesdays"
95th season features an exceptional lineup of acclaimed musicians
Offering concerts of world-class artists to San Antonio, the Tuesday Musical Club Artist Series will again present four concerts for “Music on Tuesdays” by renowned artists for its 2017-2018 season:
Hailed a “firebrand who held nothing back, but possessed the underlying discipline to make all the risks pay off…she seemed to relish the materiality of sound production” (Incident Light) and noted for her “supreme panache and charming effortless phrasing” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), Colombian-American cellist Christine Lamprea was the First Prize winner of both the 2013 Schadt National String and 2013 Sphinx competitions.
Daniel Anastasio’s performance of Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto was “the highlight to everyone’s ears, if the full-house standing ovation were any indication” (ECM Reviews). Anastasio has performed at Yellow Barn and Tanglewood musical festivals, Cornell’s Mayfest, Marywood and Columbus State Universities, and National Sawdust (Brooklyn), with an upcoming performance at Carnegie's Weill Hall (NYC).Learn More

Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovative programming and engaging performances of music, ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. “The most striking thing about the nine-voice male a cappella group Cantus is how much heart they put into their singing” (Opera News). Cantus will perform selections from their new touring program titled Discovery of Sight, where they explore light as an integral part of life. Discovery of Sight taps into the universal experience of each person’s own sunrise or twilight hour, and moments in life when we suddenly look at the world in a new way. Discovery of Sight features masterpieces like Richard Strauss’ “Traumlicht” (Dream Light) and Franz Schubert’s “Die Nacht” (The Night) alongside modern works including Eric Whitacre’s “Lux Aurumque” (Light and Gold), Einojuhani Rautavaara's “The Morning Comes,” and a world premiere of “Coffee with Borges,” by Gabriel Kahane.

Presented in conjunction with Parker Chapel Recital Series, Trinity University
American concert pianist and Grammy Award winner Nathan Laube is one of the world's young top-flight virtuosos; “the fluency of Nathan Laube's musicianship was truly amazing” (Cambridge News). “Listening to such superb musicianship was pure joy; it would be difficult to describe the emotional impact conveyed by this stellar artist.” (Theatre Organ Journal). In addition to serving on the faculty of the Eastman School of Music as Assistant Professor of Organ and as a frequent guest on American Public Media’s “Pipedreams,” Laube will be a featured performer at the 2017 National Convention of the Organ Historical Society in the Twin Cities, and won his Grammy for his CD Grand Concerto.

The New York Times describes her skill as “Brilliant, sensitive and imaginative playing with resourcefulness of technique and naturalness of musicality ...a striking individuality ...a pianist to watch.'' Filjak came to international attention by winning the Gold Medal, the First Prize and the Beethoven Prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 2009, which brought her numerous engagements in the United States and internationally.Learn More
