A three-night music festival is coming soon to the University of Texas at San Antonio.  It's happening Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

"Really, it's a multiple day celebration of the music of our time," says Ethan Wickman, who teaches music at UTSA

The festival's premise is that there's plenty of music written in the last 400 years worth hearing, something that Wickman enthusiastically agrees.

Starting next August, public universities in Texas will be required to allow concealed handgun license holders to bring their weapons on campus.

Walter Wilson, Ph.D. and an associate professor of political science at UTSA and a member of the Faculty Senate, says a very small percentage of the campus would be a gun-free zone.
