Sebastian Lang-Lessing

Sebastian Lang-Lessing, the fired Music Director of the San Antonio Symphony, will conduct the Musicians of the San Antonio Symphony in two independently produced concerts at the First Baptist Church of San Antonio this week. On the program are Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, Mozart’s clarinet concerto and a piece by Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk.

Lang-Lessing was fired by the Symphony Society of San Antonio, for violating a contract clause prohibiting him from conducting with any group other than the San Antonio Symphony when concerts are scheduled.

The orchestra’s management announced Tuesday that all ‘official’ concerts for the 2021-2022 season have been canceled. The Musicians of the San Antonio Symphony have been on strike since September 2021 over a substantial lost in pay and benefits, but they have played a number of concerts on their own.
