Sebastian Lang-Lessing

The San Antonio Symphony and German conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing, 53, have announced the extension of his contract as Music Director through the 2019-20 season. Beginning with the 2020-21 season, Lang-Lessing will have the title of Music Director Emeritus.

To demonstrate his long term commitment to the Orchestra and the San Antonio community, the conductor has issued a challenge grant of $100,000 to be matched by new and increased gifts by August 31, 2019.  Contributors to his fund will help to secure the Orchestra’s future.

In 2010, Sebastian Lang-Lessing was introduced as the Orchestra’s eighth Music Director, beginning his tenure on October 2 with a sold-out performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 1.
