On June 30, 2019 the Lone Star Symphonic Band and the Lone Star Community Choir once again bring the Katy community a rousing patriotic concert aptly titled “Our America, Our Home.” This year the Band and Choir will partner musical forces to bring Katy patriotic classics honoring our servicemen and women of all the branches of the armed forces, including “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Salute to the Armed Forces,” “God Bless America,” and “God Bless the USA.” Bring the whole family to celebrate this wonderful nation at the concert on June 30!

The Lone Star Symphonic Band is a non-profit volunteer organization which offers the community quality performances balancing audience appeal with challenging literature for its members. Founded in 1993 as the West Houston Concert Band, the band is comprised of musicians from all walks of life and promotes lifelong opportunities and growth for skilled musicians and is committed to providing a valuable contribution to the American Concert Band tradition. In the summer of 2011, the Band began rehearsing and performing concerts at CrossPoint Community Church, in Katy, Texas. In December 2012, the Lone Star Symphonic Band was awarded the Sudler Silver Scroll, which is administered by the John Philip Sousa Foundation (www.sousafoundation.net) and is North America’s most prestigious award for Community Concert Bands. The purpose of the award is to identify, recognize and honor those community bands that have demonstrated particularly high standards of excellence in concert activities over a period of several years, and which have played a significant and leading role in the cultural and musical environment in their respective communities. The Band is under the direction of Mr. Bob Bryant.
