(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."
