The Alamo and the Tobin Endowment Present Remember, a Musical About the Battle of the Alamo
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Alamo, in partnership with the Tobin Endowment are proud to present the world premiere of Remember, a musical honoring those who gave their lives for Texas on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, featuring the San Antonio Symphony, soloists and chorus. With two shows only, a full house is expected.
With book and lyrics by W. Blake Winchell and original music by Brett Strader, Remember is a musical concert with a 60-piece symphony, 11 actors, and a 100-voice chorus. It will be a powerful performance that speaks to the legends, lore and the true spirit of Texas.
“It is an honor to work with the Tobin Endowment and the San Antonio Symphony on this once-in-a-lifetime event,” said Alamo CEO Doug McDonald. “It is almost poetic that it will happen during the 184th anniversary of the battle itself."
Just a few blocks away from the historic site itself, Remember will fittingly take place during Commemoration, the Alamo’s annual tribute to the heroes of the Battle of the Alamo from February 23 through March 6. Commemoration will mark the 184th anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo.
“The San Antonio Symphony is excited to be a partner for this special opportunity. The Alamo is deeply interwoven into the fabric of Texas and San Antonio,” said Corey Cowart, Executive Director of the San Antonio Symphony said. “As a native Texan, this is a story I think all of us hear from the time we are young. The Symphony is proud to be the soundtrack for the stories of San Antonio, past, present, and future.”
Remember is sure to be a special experience for music, theater, and Alamo fans alike. If you love the Alamo, it will touch you. If you love great music, it will move you. If you love the theater, it will speak to you. If you love all three, it will be a performance you will never forget.
Tickets are on sale now on the Tobin Center website.
