The Kingwood Big Band will celebrate America’s birthday early with its sixth annual Patriotic Celebration Concert on Saturday, June 30 at Lone Star College-Kingwood.
This concert, sponsored by the Rotary Club of East Montgomery County, will take place at 2 p.m. It will be the first major event held inside the college’s Student Conference Center since Hurricane Harvey. The band will perform patriotic favorites and jazz music from the Big Band era in honor of the Independence Day Holiday.
“Student musicians in our area often do not have the resources to pursue a degree in their chosen profession. We support that need through these types of activities, but scholarships for student musicians is just a small part of Rotary’s efforts dedicated to the provision of scholarship funds to students in our area,” said Jim Stubbs, Rotary president and dean of the Fire Science, Letters, Art, and Kinesiology division at LSC-Kingwood.
Tickets to the Patriotic Celebration Concert are $10 for general admission and $5 for students ages 18 and younger. Children under 12 are free. Only cash or checks (no credit cards please) will be accepted. Tickets are available at the door. Proceeds from this concert will benefit LSC-Kingwood music scholarships and other Rotary projects.
