(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.
