Traveling symphonic orchestras strike a tune with audiences

SAN ANTONIO – Professional and pro-level symphonic orchestras are gaining momentum as they travel to reach audiences beyond traditional music halls.

Five years ago, Ronnie Sanders got the idea of ​​having high-caliber musicians come together to form an orchestra and play for audiences for free.

“Would anybody show up? And they did,” Sanders said to his surprise.

He has about 70 members who audition for the part. They travel to different auditoriums in the city and area as part of the South Texas Symphonic Orchestra.

“Most of our concerts are absolutely free. We want anybody who wants to hear an orchestra to come without any problem with ticket prices,” Sanders said.

The orchestra is on donations and fundraisers for support.

Terera never goes anywhere without two extra power banks, just in case she loses access to electricity. And if you think that’s extreme, you should talk to other travelers. Between power outages, strange plugs and batteries that seem to register “low” all the time, travelers are constantly looking for their next charge.
