LONE STAR WIND ORCHESTRA
The Lone Star Wind Orchestra (LSWO) was founded in April 2006 by Robert Clark, Barry Knezek and Christopher Tucker, with the objective of building the orchestra from a player’s perspective, as a vital participant in the North Texas arts community. The LSWO performs classical transcriptions, chamber music and contemporary wind band literature in some of the finest performance halls. The organization is proud to nurture musical growth through its guest artists and conductors, as well as support the expansion of the wind band repertoire through commissioning new works. Among the organization’s many achievements, the Lone Star Wind Orchestra has launched the LSWO Youth Winds, expanded the organization’s successful “Lone Star Kids” program providing a concert experience to Title-I music programs, and presented nine “Music Changing Lives” scholarships to deserving high school seniors. The Lone Star Wind Orchestra has partnered with outreach organizations to provide over 3,500 free performance tickets to the artistically underserved. The Lone Star Wind Orchestra strives to embody “Music Changing Lives” to audiences and, as a role model for young students, to encourage the pursuit of music involvement as a life-long passion.
