A local symphony has set a holiday-themed event for this weekend. They’re Seguin's Mid Texas Symphony.

“This is our thirty-seventh season.”

Artistic Director David Mairs.

“And we play half of our concerts in Jackson Auditorium at Texas Lutheran Auditorium in Seguin, and the other half in the Performing Arts Center at Canyon High School in New Braunfels.”

Now, you’ve got a concert coming up on Sunday, is that right?

“Sunday the fourteenth at four, yeah. Called Christmas Bells. We have some wonderful guest artists. We have the River City Ringers from San Antonio. They’re going to be playing three pieces, two by themselves and then we’re going to be doing an arrangement of Go Tell It On the Mountain for handbells and Orchestra.We also have the Mid Texas Symphony Chorus and together we’ll be performing the Vivaldi Magnificat. We have Kids Chorus from the New Braunfels area and they’ll be doing a couple of songs that they’ve been studying. And then a little Bach, a little Holzst. And then Leroy Anderson’s Magnificent Sleigh Ride.”

He says the 4PM Sunday Seguin concert tickets have been moving quickly.

“We probably have some tickets left, and it’s a good family thing. Prices are dirt cheap.”
