This week The Briscoe Western Art Museum is launching a new program titled “Tuesday Nights at the Briscoe.” This program offers guests free museum admission from 4p.m. to 9p.m. along with activities like concerts, gallery talks, dance performances and lectures. The goal is to give locals and visitors a chance to experience this downtown gem for free. It is sponsored by Insperity and the City of San Antonio’s Department for Culture and Creative Development and pairs ideally with the city’s free downtown Tuesday parking and VIA’s new E Route. The new E Route offers free downtown streetcar transportation from 6p.m. to midnight.
It all begins this Tuesday June 23 with a performance by San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble (SAVAE). San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble is a group of musicians that combine ancient vocal music with early and traditional instruments from the Middle East, Europe and North and South America.
The group consists of:
Kathy Mayer – soprano, wind instruments, harp, bowed instruments
Tanya Moczygemba – mezzo-soprano, percussion
Covita Moroney – (founder and manager) alto, plucked instruments, percussion
Christopher Moroney – (artistic director) bass/baritone, wind instruments, percussion
Jody Noblett – baritone, wind instruments, percussion
Lee P’Pool – tenor, percussion
Sonya Florie – soprano, percussion.
