Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) has created a Kickstarter in hopes of funding a unique concert performance of the landmark album, OK Computer by Radiohead. 

YOSA asks San Antonio’s for help bringing the event that will likely not be forgotten. On June 27, YOSA will collaborate with some of San Antonio’s best-known musical acts to produce the notorious blend of classical music and alternative rock throughout each song of the iconic Radiohead album.

The San Antonio Current previously covered the event's well-known local musicians which include Nina Diaz, Demitasse, Pop Pistol, Lonely Horse, Octahedron, Nicolette Good, Alyson Alonzo, Femina-X, Jaime Ramirez, The Lavens and Jonathan Raveneau. 

In order to create this one-time event, YOSA has launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund the substantial initial investment, which covers the rental of rehearsal space and performance venue, live audio recording, plus pay for the stage crew, lighting director, and audio engineer.

YOSA calls their backers “a key role in positioning YOSA to bring this exciting project to the stage.” The concert proceeds will benefit the YOSA scholarship fund, who is devoted to the education of youth through music. 

Currently, the campaign has received $705 of their $5000 goal. There are 18 days remaining to donate. 

Tickets for the event are already on sale at the Tobin Center box office, however, the project will only go on if YOSA receives funding by 11 p.m. on June 23.
