SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – If you like British music and royalty, the South Texas Symphonic Orchestra concert is the place to be this weekend.
“We’re playing William Walton’s music that was played for the coronations of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II, and the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton,” said Director Ronnie Sanders.
He founded the orchestra a few years ago.
“There’s plenty of musicians out there who are fantastic, but they don’t have an orchestra to call home, so I wanted to bring together these musicians who want to do it for the love of music,” said Sanders.
The orchestra is comprised of more than 80 volunteers.
“These are auditioned musicians. You have to play and be proficient on your instrument,” said Sanders.
The concert is scheduled at 3 pm Sunday at the Jefferson High School Auditorium.
