(March 5, 2010)--As part of the effort to attract younger audiences, San Antonio Symphony President Jack Fischman visited the UTSA Main Campus to speak with music students about the upcoming season and a special promotion, "UTSA at the Symphony," at 8 p.m. March 19-20 in the San Antonio Municipal Auditorium.

"UTSA at the Symphony" will feature members from the original Broadway production of "Beatlemania," which includes 30 Beatles songs as part of the "Classical Mystery Tour: A Tribute to the Beatles." Tickets for students of all ages are $8.

Fischman is promoting the event with students in the UTSA music marketing program, coordinated by Matthew Dunne, UTSA assistant professor of music.

"We believe that if we can introduce students to symphony music at a young age, we will have a better chance of having them become subscribers when they are older and have more free time and financial resources," said Fischman.

According to Fischman, students tickets for all concerts this season, classical and pop, are $8 for the best available seats, regardless of location in the auditorium.

UTSA at the Symphony! is a collaborative venture between the UTSA Music Marketing Program and the San Antonio Symphony. Designed by students for students, UTSA at the Symphony! aims to increase university student attendance among Classical and Pops subscription concerts.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
