(April 10, 2013) -- The UTSA Department of Music marketing program will present nationally known singer-songwriter Ernie Halter and Austin's 21-piece, award-winning orchestral indie band Mother Falcon for a concert performance at 8 p.m., Wednesday, April 24 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is $15.

Halter's music has been featured on "Good Morning America," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Additionally, he has shared the studio and the stage with several top acts including Neil Young, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz, Colby Caillat and Sara Barielles.

Halter made international headlines in 2011 when Justin Bieber made a surprise appearance at his concert in Costa Mesa, Calif., and joined him onstage to perform his composition, "Come Home To Me." Halter has released five albums, most recently his acoustic album "Hi Fidelity." Following Halter's performance, Austin 21-piece orchestral indie band Mother Falcon will take the stage.

With only two albums under its belt, Mother Falconhas risen to the top of Austin's live music scene, selling out several noted venues including Antone's, The Mohawk and The Parish. The large multi-instrumental band that combines orchestra and pop styles performed at SXSW last month and has made several festival appearances including FunFunFun Fest. The group was a headliner for the Austin Chamber Music Festival in 2012. For the last three years, Mother Falcon won the "Best None of the Above Award" category at the Austin Music Awards.

The concert will be produced by students in the UTSA Music Marketing program in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts. The program provides students the opportunity to work directly with professionals and learn various facets of the music industry. Students participate in creative music marketing projects in a seminar setting and as a dedicated course for projects.
Previous UTSA music marketing program projects include:

  • Promoting a concert collaboration with the classic rock group Kansas and the UTSA Orchestra,
  • Working with San Antonio Symphony management to market orchestral concerts to colleges,
  • Assisting with the production of the international Southwest Guitar Festival and
  • Organizing a highly successful battle of the bands competition at a local music venue.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
