If there was one consistent comment I heard from both judges and audience members alike at this year's SOUNDS LIKE KPAC talent competition, it's that the music, and and writing were of exceptionally high quality this year. Tallying the scores during intermission, it was clear this was a tight race. At the end of the afternoon, students from Ronald Reagan High School, Health Careers High School, Clark High School, and one local homeschool student all took first place awards at SOUNDS LIKE KPAC, held January 28, 2018 at McAllister Auditorium on the campus of San Antonio College.

When you think of French cuisine, creamy delights and delicious pastries come to mind. When you think of French art, it’s the Impressionists you see.

And when it comes to French music, composers like Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc, or Darius Milhaud may ring in your mind’s ear.
