When a local symphony takes the stage on Sunday, it will be for the first time ever.  Artistic Director Ronnie Sanders says this orchestra has just been created over the past few months.

"The South Texas Symphonic Orchestra is an all-volunteer orchestra, made up of trained musicians who want to play just for the love of music," he says.

As you might expect, there's some symbolism behind Sander's choice of music for the first concert.

The Symphony of the Hills opens its fall performance season Thursday in Kerrville, and they're starting out with a bang.

"The first concert, Wild Wild West, is music inspired by the frontier spirit."

Music Director Gene Dowdy appears to be really looking forward to the concert.

On Fridays, we give you a preview of some of the weekend's most interesting events. This week, it's a little different, with an emphasis on the last event.  

First off, on Saturday at the Institute of Texan Cultures Buddhist monks are creating a community mandala out of colorful sands. It's called The Mystical Arts of Tibet, and promises to be both fascinating and beautiful. Then on Saturday night, Texas original Billy Joe Shaver is playing a great live outdoor venue outside of Boerne, the Round Up.
