The San Antonio Symphony will present a special concert featuring soloist Stewart Copeland. Selections will include Franz Schmidt's Notre Dame – Entracte and Carnival Music; Copeland's The Tyrant's Crush Trapset Concerto; and Camille Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3 in C minor, “Organ.”

French master Saint-Saëns' “Organ” Symphony is one of the significant orchestral works of the romantic era, with great tunes, wide ranging colors, masterful counterpoint and a thrilling finale that is second to none.

The first half of the concert features a true rarity – a concerto for trapset, percussion and orchestra. Copeland is one of most inventive and recognizable rock drummers of all time. He has composed for The Police, opera and ballet companies, orchestras and films by Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone. The work celebrates the un-tapped virtuosity of the symphonic percussion section and demonstrates that the distance between rock drummer and timpani virtuoso is not as far as one may think.
