First Baptist Church's ongoing music program begins its fall/winter season on Oct. 26, Sunday. I spoke to the church’s Aaron Hufty about the first performance, by a group called Spectrum Winds.

"Well this is a group of young professional musicians, who  are part of the USAF Band of the West, stationed at Lackland Air Force Base. This quintet plays a wide variety of chamber music and so we’re looking forward to hosting them this Sunday at our church.”
