Saturday evening, March 7th, the San Angelo Symphony is putting on a great concert at the McNease Convention Center starting at 7 pm.

I visited with Hector Guzman, the Conductor/Director of the Symphony this morning on the 'Kickin' Wake-Up Call'.

Three of their pieces deal with water in some way - 'Water Music Suite' - G.F. Handel, Rococo variations for Cello and Orchestra - P.I. Tchaikovsky, music from the movie The Sea Hawk - E. Korngold, and La Mer (The Sea) - C. Debussy. You can see why they titles this concert 'Just Add Water'. 

They even have a talented cellist coming in from Indiana University, who is originally from Puerto Rico.  Featuring Emilio Colón will be the evenings featured solo performance.

Hector also talks about how important it is to keep music alive and well in the Concho Valley. The Symphony puts on youth concerts, two being this Friday morning. Some students are hearing live symphonic music for the first time in their lives, and it's not just classical music, but songs they are familiar with.
