WRITER’S BLOC: San Antonio Jazz Composer’s Consortium for New Music.

Merriam-Websters defines “Bloc” as “a group of people or countries that are connected by a treaty or agreement or by common goals.” This group of composers has brought it’s collective talent and energy together to present the new music that is being written in the San Antonio region. The goal of this group is to present as much of the music being written by new young composers, as well as the established writing talent of our city to the public.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED COMPOSERS:

Adrian Ruiz, Aaron Prado, Brian Christiensen, Joe Caploe, Mark Little, and Steve Mohacey

thefallsThis iconic San Antonio act is coming back together to show us what music-making is all about.  The Falls will be packed to the gills with people who wish to step back in time and remember hard-rock the way it is supposed to be.  It will be cold tonight but I doubt anyone will care with all of those hot beats going on.

It’s going to be a good night.

For years, San Antonio has consistently maintained a record amount of MLK March attendees; beating out the largest metroplexes.  I believe it has something to do with the diversity in this great city.  If you have ever been to a march, you were probably more than just pleasantly surprised to see the many different people who walked with you.  The essence of peace is in the air as well as a coming-together of beautiful souls from different backgrounds.

The march starts at 10:00.  Hope to see you there.

VIA Metropolitan Transit will offer complimentary bus service to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day March on Monday, Jan. 18, 2016.

To access the service, riders are asked to park at Freeman Coliseum, 3201 E. Houston St. (Lot 1), or St. Philip’s College, 1801 Martin Luther King Dr. (Lot 22), between 8 and 10 a.m., Monday. The drop-off point for service to the march will be on MLK Drive, west of Upland Drive. The pick-up location for return service will be at Pittman Sullivan Park, 1101 Iowa St. Buses will return between noon and 3 p.m.”
