The halls of Geekdom are normally filled with techies workshopping the next killer app or the next innovation in cloud computing. But this weekend there was a different type of brain storm at the downtown offices.

Asia Ciaravino, president of the San Antonio Playhouse, stood in front of a computer project screen as she pitched their big idea to expert entrepreneurs. Ciaravino and five other arts groups just went through the three-day startup process where they learned to re-think their approach to business.

The Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio was formed in 2008, and though the group's history is a short one, their November 7 event at the San Antonio Museum of Art has a 100-year time time frame. The event celebrates composer Benjamin Britten.

"People all over the world are celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth," said Paul Montalvo, the artistic director of the Chamber Orchestra of San Antonio.
