San Antonio Symphony regulars will notice a missing person in upcoming concerts, a fixture in the organization for the past five years.

On Christmas Eve, tune to KPAC 88.3 FM and KTXI 90.1 FM for a special program, “A Baroque Holiday,” featuring the San Antonio Symphony, led by Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto.
