(March 14, 2011)--UTSA Department of Music students Evana Toll and Gregory Obregon in the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA) Philharmonic will perform with legendary Yes singer Jon Anderson at 8 p.m., Monday, March 14 in the Majestic Theatre.
The concert will feature music from the band's biggest hits including "Owner of a Lonely Heart," "Roundabout," "And You and I" and "Long Distance Runaround."
"For classic rock fans, this concert will be a chance to hear music they know and love in a new context with orchestra," said Troy Peters, YOSA director. "I hope this means that a whole new group of music lovers will get to know YOSA and to appreciate our students' musical achievement."
Anderson's vocals from "High Places" are sampled on the number one album in the country, Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy."
The philharmonic is comprised of student musicians from various middle and high schools in the San Antonio area and some college-age students.
Tickets are $25, $35 and $45 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the Majestic Theatre box office.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
