Stewart Copeland drummed for the wildly popular '80s and '90s group The Police. Now he's back in San Antonio on a decidedly different beat.  He's written a concerto called The Tyrant's Crush, and he says writing a score for an orchestra is tougher than making rock-n-roll.

San Antonio performing arts organizations are beginning their fall seasons. I spoke with the Symphony's Sebastian Lang-Lessing who said the San Antonio Symphony is starting out the season with a bang.

"The season starts with a very big bang with Carmina Burana by Carl Orff," he says.

The San Antonio Symphony launches a new initiative to reach young musicians.  It's called the High School Residency Program, and it takes musicians from the symphony and has them mentor students from two local high schools.
