This weekend you can enjoy a pops concert that's like a bouquet of different Broadway hits. You can take a musical tour of the dark side of the moon. Then you can experience violin and piano in a cave, with bats overhead. The Weekend is here, and there’s plenty to do.

A cinema classic gets a symphonic makeover.  The Institute of Texan Cultures hosts two holiday special events.  And a blues guitarist brings her international talent to town. The weekend is here, and there’s music and dance everywhere.

The City's Department of Arts and Culture and the San Antonio Arts Commission are seeking feedback on a draft plan focused on enhancing and promoting performing arts. What needs and opportunities exist when it comes to this sector of the creative community?

Witness a new Day of the Dead event at La Villita. Listen to a symphony reimagine the Beatles. And then watch a youth arts group team up with members of a chamber orchestra. The weekend is here, and there’s much to do!

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio offers its own version of a pay-it-forward style concert this weekend. YOSA's Troy Peters said the side-by-side concerts they perform twice a year have that pay-it-forward aspect built into their DNA.

The San Antonio Symphony returns to the airwaves this Saturday, August 3 at 7:00 p.m. with a concert featuring Andre Watts performing Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor. When Watts appeared with the symphony last fall, it was his first visit to San Antonio since 2005.

The opening show also includes Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, and a mesmerizing new piece by the contemporary British composer Anna Clyne, called “Masquerade.”

The Edgewood Independent School District will start the new school year without a fine arts coordinator.

The decision is drawing criticism from Jeremy Brimhall, the director of education at the San Antonio Symphony.
