The HSU Concert Band and World Famous Cowboy Band

The HSU Concert Band and World Famous Cowboy Band

An evening of music and fun was presented at the HSU Berehn Hall. First the Concert Band finished its annual tour of Texas cities with a great performance. Then the Cowboy Band took the stage and the crowd went from a formal concert to one where the band might yell and did strut several times. At one point the drum major abandoned the stage to come out and serenade members of the audience. I never dreamed of watching a couple polka to a trombone solo but now I have been there to watch it happen.{{more}}During the change over between the two bands, Mrs. Loretta Starkey presented the HSU Music Department a music based quilt. They have not decided at this time whether to put it on permanent display or auction it to raise funds for their summer program.Loretta Starkey presents quilt to Dr. Wayne Dorothy.
