Ovation for SPC in Carnegie Hall Debut Project

One highlight of the St. Philip’s College San Antonio Youth Wind Ensemble Carnegie Hall debut concert project was a five-minute standing ovation in the hall for the musicians June 19 in Manhattan.

The students were pre-booked to spend an unforgettable Father’s Day weekend June 17-20 at The Westin New York at Times Square. Using the property as a hub, the team rehearsed and recovered after being both recorded live as the closing artists on a double bill with the Masterwork Festival Chorus, and enjoying a post-concert reception after the standing ovation in Carnegie Hall. A few words and many photos posted to a Facebook page document a historic moment of student success for a college observing its 30th anniversary as the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) member institution with the largest enrollment among HBCUs, and the only college in the nation federally designated as both an HBCU and a Hispanic Serving Institution.

The San Antonio Youth Wind Ensembles experience helps youth make a high-performance musical connection between community service and college education. The students are members of a successful seven-year-old musical organization whose alumni are now attending such colleges as MIT, Brown and Stanford, where one of the alumni is a doctoral program student. Twenty-seven percent of 2015 season UTSA Marching Band members were ensemble alumni or current ensemble members. Before they moved on, combinations of those alumni performed admission-free concerts, both on and off campus, to educate audiences as a community service. The reputation of the program and its students has opened doors to such ensemble-community partnerships as year-round programming for San Antonio Public Library patrons, and periodic performance work with locally stationed armed forces musicians on patriotic programs. The performance season runs from November-June.
