The San Antonio Symphony launches a new initiative to reach young musicians.  It's called the High School Residency Program, and it takes musicians from the symphony and has them mentor students from two local high schools.

From a Gospel brunch to Afro-Cuban music, to a Farmer's Market, get ready--the Weekend's here. Saturday morning at Trinity University, it's the Trinity Market. It's the city's only University-sponsored Farmer's Market.

"We really focus on Health and Wellness, so most of our vendors offer healthy options in addition to your farmers and ranchers that come out."

That's Trinity's Haley Sayrs.

Which Texas Taco Town is Most Improved?

Aug 18, 2016

From Texas Standard:

In a state where taco is king, assertions of a town's taco superiority are fightin' words, as past events have shown us.

So claiming one specific town is "most improved" is a risky move. But taco journalists Mando Rayo and Jarod Neece say one Texas city deserves that honor. In fact, one of the city's establishments was just named one of the best in the nation.


From Texas Standard:

It's been smooth sailing for Leon Bridges this summer. The 27-year-old neo-soul singer from Fort Worth has gotten lots of critical acclaim as well as a mighty big hat tip from President Obama, who included Bridges on his second-annual summer Spotify playlist.

The playlist runs the gamut from indie rockers like Courtney Barnett and Edward Sharpe to Brazil's Caetano Veloso. Dan Solomon, who writes for Texas Monthly, thinks the president may have overlooked some Texas flavor.
