Musicians welcomed several dozen artists and media to the Carver Cultural Center where details were revealed about the city's next celebration of the arts called Luminaria. City Councilman Alan Warrick was the first to speak, and he cited the gathering's distinctly party vibe.

A local arts organization is looking for some rhythmic volunteers from San Antonio.

"Urban 15 will be starting its open call for drummers and dancers in the first Tuesday of October," says Urban 15 co-founder George Cisneros. 

The troupe's dance and drum corps are known nationwide for their rhythms and presentational creativity. But Cisneros says now they're upping the ante.

San Antonio performing arts organizations are beginning their fall seasons. I spoke with the Symphony's Sebastian Lang-Lessing who said the San Antonio Symphony is starting out the season with a bang.

"The season starts with a very big bang with Carmina Burana by Carl Orff," he says.

A San Antonio Chamber music group's 13th season is set to begin.  They're called Camerata San Antonio, but their season opening show isn't in San Antonio.

"No, it's not. Our first concert is on September 9th, and that is in Boerne," says cellist and founder Ken Freudigman. "September 10th is in Kerrville. And then we skip a week and we are here in San Antonio on September 18th."
