UNITYFest bridges world cultures through music

For 25 years since its inception, Musical Bridges Around the World has embodied the notion that music is a universal language that can connect people across physical boundaries, cultural misunderstandings and political animosity.

In that spirit, the arts nonprofit will celebrate UNITYFest from February 2-5 at venues around San Antonio with a series of free concerts in a variety of musical styles. The name is the rebranding of the group’s annual international music festival and is the result of conversations between musical bridge co-founders Anya Grokowski and San Antonio’s First Lady.

Prosper said, “We’ve been talking about Musical Bridge and its influence over the years in bringing people together through music. The new name simply describes what the festival is all about.” Rather, she said, it tells the story of what the festival does.
