 Youth Orchestras of San Antonio is known for doing what they call Classic Albums Live, where they re-create popular albums using their orchestra and added musicians. Next Monday night though, Music Director Troy Peters says they're throwing a curve.

The San Antonio Symphony will perform Hollywood Hits this Friday at the Tobin Center. Before they do, they’ll perform the show for a special crowd: people with dementia and their caregivers. 

It’s part of the Memory and Music program at the Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases. The Symphony and the Tobin Center welcome those with dementia and their caregivers to certain rehearsals so they can enjoy the music in an environment more suited to their needs.

Two familiar faces come back to the San Antonio Symphony. Also, listen to a string quartet in a dive bar. And then take a cinematic journey with cowboys at the Briscoe Museum. Your weekend is here, and it's definitely interesting!

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.

The McNay Art Museum’s new exhibit, "Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage," explores all mediums of theatre art, from set design to music composition to on-stage performance. The extensive collection of late San Antonio arts philanthropist Robert Tobin made the exhibition possible.

From a new Art exhibit, to music in a really unusual place, to music in a delightfully usual place — the weekend holds the promise of lots of fun.

I picked up the phone, and could practically hear the outstretched hand through the receiver.

“Nathan, good morning…! Bill Shatner.”

And there he is, larger than life, even on the phone. Denny Crane, T.J. Hooker, the Priceline.com Negotiator, Captain Kirk, and perhaps the best character of them all, William Shatner.
