Musical Bridges Around the World

Electric cars, a sizzling international collaboration, and music that defies definition.  These are just a few of the things that you ought to consider doing this weekend. Let's start with the San Antonio Electric Vehicle Club: they're hitting the road to Boerne's Patrick Heath Public Library.

It would be quite impressive if a band managed to stay together for 55 years. But a band up in Boerne has been together for a hundred and fifty-five years.

It’s a program created by the Patrick Heath Public Library in Boerne and it’s got a very retro feel. Hearkening back to the Beatles album, it's called the Magical History Tour.

“What we are trying to do is to introduce our patrons, and anyone else who’s interested, to the history of the region," said Heath librarian Robin Stauber. To do so they’ve created these tours, and Stauber said they have gone all over the place.  

“We’ve been to New Braunfels, we’ve been to Bandera, we’ve been to Castroville, we've been into San Antonio to do some things there,” Stauber said.

Alamo Area MPO

The Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is working this week with residents in its expanded metro area outside San Antonio to come up with a regional transportation and traffic safety plan for the next 25 years.

It’s a Fourth of July celebration that’s not actually happening on the fourth. And it’s not a fireworks show, but a patriotic musical review. 

"(It's) our theatrical stage show Proud to Be American," said Tom Masinter, who runs the Allegro Stage Company, which is putting on the show.

"We’re going to be doing a lot of American music to celebrate," he said. "We’ll be doing Frank Sinatra songs and Judy Garland songs. And we’ll be doing a lot of 50s rock 'n' roll, good ol’ rock 'n'roll. We’re even going to do some patriotic songs because it’s good to be a Texan."
