About the Event:


St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is proud to announce it will hold the Alamo Baroque Festival, as one of San Antonio’s official Tricentennial celebrations, January 8-13, 2018. The Alamo Baroque Festival presents historically informed performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries by internationally recognized artists. ​ "Music written hundreds of years ago can sound as fresh and alive today as when it was first heard," said Dr. Joseph Causby, Organist/Choirmaster at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. "Recorders, baroque violins and trumpets, harpsichords, and viola da gamba excite the senses now as they did centuries ago." The Alamo Baroque Festival will increase public awareness of the richness and variety of classical music before 1750, create opportunities for the performance of this repertoire, and educate musicians of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities in the techniques appropriate to early music. "We have the best of the best performing," adds Causby. "The public performances, master classes, and private instruction are free and open to all."
