Music lovers get ready, it's time again for Victoria Symphony's Downtown Rhythms at DeLeon Plaza.

The free, outdoor concert will play Broadway showstoppers, movie classics and even music from video games, such as World of Warcraft.

"Downtown Rhythms brings a more popular vein of music to the symphony including jazz, pop-rock, Broadway, film and television," said Maestro Darryl One.

Special guest performances from several school ensembles including the VISD Chamber Orchestra, Smith Elementary ORFF Ensemble, VEHS Percussion Ensemble and VC Commercial Band will perform.

Education Coordinator Debbie Durham said there will be an array of performers from children to adults.

"Downtown Rhythms performers testify to the talent in the Crossroads area, not only of performers, but also our hardworking music educators," she said.

Children can also get their hands on instruments through the musical petting zoo.

One said the success of the event is a community effort.

"We are all about community collaboration and promoting music from younger groups," he said.
