Friday night includes a celebration of Flag Day with the Heart of Texas Concert Band. "It's not as popular a holiday as St. Patrick's Day or even Columbus Day!", says music director and conductor Mark Rogers. "But we found lots of music appropriate for honoring the flag and wanted to do a concert."
"It came to me in one night - a dream! I like to say that those dream images were probably rooted in my just going to college for the first time," says Conrad Tao about his Vestiges for piano. That was the start for the new album, Voyages.
