In San Antonio this weekend you'll find plenty of music: Conjunto music, piano music and a musical stage drama. First off: Conjunto all weekend at the Tejano Conjunto Festival.

Tejano Conjunto Festival

Conjunto was born when Europeans brought accordions to South Texas, and locals paired them with bajo sexto, making the genre a San Antonio native in the world of music. The Guadalupe Cultural Arts' Cristina Balli says this weekend, Rosedale Park will be the center of the Conjunto universe.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio's next concert features something their concerts usually don't. Music Director Troy Peters says that unexpected element in this Sunday's Tobin Center performance isn't even in the music itself.

"We're coming at it in kind of an unusual way. It's a multimedia presentation with video,” he said. They’re teaming up with a video artist to try and manifest in video what people are hearing in the music.
