Youth Orchestras of San Antonio is hoping to take listeners on an adventure this weekend. And the nature of the music that YOSA's Troy Peters has selected ensures it will be quite theatrical.

From the Symphony to a Broadway play to Mexican roots music, we've found there's much to do around the Alamo City this weekend. First we speak to the San Antonio Symphony's Sebastian Lang-Lessing.

"A hundred years ago the October Revolution happened in Russia." 

Lang-Lessing's built a program of Russian music to look back at that world-changing event.

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. 

Musical Bridges Around the World

One of San Antonio's longer musical traditions starts up again this Sunday, and the place it's happening seems to affect everyone.

"It's a striking hallowed space, and it never fails, when artists set foot in that space for the first time, the impact that it has," says Suhail Arastu. He's talking about San Fernando Cathedral in downtown San Antonio, where the concert is taking place. This performance is a special one.

"Musical Bridges' 20th Anniversary kicks off on Sunday, October first at 7PM at the Cathedral San Fernando."
