About the Band
The Heart of Texas Concert Band is an all-volunteer community band as diverse as San Antonio, not only in our membership, but also in the music we play and the different venues in which we perform, giving our gift of music to the community.
Founded in March of 2009, the Heart of Texas Concert Band performs 10+ concerts a season for enthusiastic and appreciative audiences of all ages. The Heart of Texas Concert Band, nonprofit organization, is an all-volunteer band consisting of about 90 members. The directors, members, officers and supporting staff do not receive monetary compensation. Funding for the band comes primarily through donations from members and patrons.
Beginning in the fall of 2013, the Heart of Texas Concert Band entered into a cooperative agreement with San Antonio College. Under this agreement, San Antonio College music students who perform on wind and percussion instruments are able to perform as members of the Heart of Texas Concert Band to satisfy their requirement for membership in a performing ensemble of the highest caliber. The band wishes to extend its deepest thanks to Alamo Community College District and the Department of Fine Arts at SAC, Jeff Hunt, department chair, for this opportunity to contribute to musical life at SAC and to enrich the cultural arts scene in the north central area of San Antonio.
