(Nov. 21, 2012) -- The UTSA Office of Community Relations will present the fourth annual "Holiday Saxophones" concert featuring the Regency Jazz Band at 2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 16 at the Buena Vista Theater (1.326) on the UTSA Downtown Campus. The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center will present the jazz musicians at a 7 p.m. performance that evening at the Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe St.

"Holiday Saxophones" is a unique annual event that has become a San Antonio holiday tradition for audience members as well as for the musicians. The performances are sell-out events and touted as a favorite of San Antonio's music aficionados.

Legendary musicians who have played for past "Holiday Saxophones" events include George Prado (also on bass), Spot Barnette, Richard Garcia, Frank Rodarte, Jan Halsema and Latin Grammy Award winner Joe Posada on saxophone as well as drummer Kevin Hess and Al Gomez on trumpet. Other artists to be featured include Rene Sandoval, Larry Slezak, John Sheridan, Chuck Glave, John Magaldi, Richard Oppenheim, Aaron Prado and Henry Brun.

"The musicians who play in our 'Holiday Saxophones' events are simply amazing performers," said Gina Mendez, director of community relations at the UTSA Downtown Campus. "We encourage San Antonians to take a moment from their busy holiday schedules to enjoy great music and great company."

The event is sponsored by UTSA, Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs, Kronkosky Charitable Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts, The Kresge Foundation, theFund, La Prensa, Univision 41 and the San Antonio Express-News.

A revolution in cloud computing is underway, and Ravi Sandhu believes it will be much bigger than the PC and Internet revolutions that have already changed the way we live.
