Holiday Laser Show

URBAN-15’s annual Holiday Laser Show is a multimedia spectacular of choreographed laser beams, colorful 3D animation and light effects performed to traditional holiday favorites and experimental electronic composition. The Holiday Laser Show is a collaborative production of world-renowned laser artist Tim Walsh and composer George Cisneros, who have worked together on projects in cities all around the United States. Notable presentations include the opening ceremonies of the Texas Sesquicentennial in 1986 at the State Capitol; the World Empathy Conference in Guadalajara, Mexico; and the 2008-2012 LUMINARIA celebrations in San Antonio.

The colorful 3D animation and stunning aerial beam displays of the Holiday Laser Show are much beloved by the thousands of students throughout Bexar County whose schools reserve seats each year for URBAN-15’s daytime shows. In 2015, 7,000 children from schools and community centers in and around San Antonio attended the Holiday Laser Show at the beautiful Lila Cockrell Theater completely free of charge. Every year we also hold an evening show open to the general public, which combines the holiday-themed fun of the student concerts with more abstract visual and sonic expressions–making the Holiday Laser Show one of the most unique holiday celebrations in San Antonio!

Each year we start taking reservations from schools and community centers in September. If you would like your students to be a part of this year’s concerts, please contact us in the fall, or send your email address and school information to events@urban15.org so that we can add you to our Laser Show mailing list.

For teachers, we have also compiled links to supplemental materials that add an educational component to the event, highlighting links between science, math, and the arts via concepts such as refraction, reflection, angles, symmetry, magnification, and others:
