Musicians of the San Antonio Symphony

In honor of International Women’s Day, here are some of the amazing female musicians and staff in the San Antonio Symphony. Women have not always been allowed play in professional orchestras-the first known female orchestral musicians began in the UK in 1912 with the New Queen’s Hall Orchestra.
