The Key of Giving

Watch our final episode of Hidden Histories Season Two!

As the winter solstice approaches and the year slows to stillness, we close out the second season of Hidden Histories with the gift of local music, inviting performances from artists who appeared this past season. Performing on Monday, December 9th will be electronic artist Alyson Alonzo; Julio Lopez of Los de Esta Noche; and pianist Luvene Elias of the legendary San Anto doowop group The Royal Jesters. Also featured: Alexandra Van de Kamp, executive director of Gemini Ink, who will offer her literary recommendations for anyone looking for holiday gift ideas.

Originally a part of the city’s Tricentennial arts activities, Hidden Histories is a monthly, magazine-format video series that pursues and preserves the stories, lives, and places that make San Antonio and surrounding regions an inspiring cultural treasure. Now in its second season, Hidden Histories continues to premiere monthly screenings live in our studio, free of charge. Each screening uncovers important cultural histories of the region by featuring archival interviews with community leaders; significant performances by musicians, dancers and poets; interactions with working artists; lost documentaries; forgotten narrative films; and vintage discussions of important community issues.

All episodes can be viewed for free either live at URBAN-15 studio (2500 S. Presa 78210) or online at

After each live screening, all episodes are archived online for 24/7 access at
