This weekend, the Heart of Texas Concert Band has a super fun Composer Showcase program lined up featuring music of Leroy Anderson.

"He was really a gifted melodist," says conductor Mark Rogers. "He was so active in the early days of recorded music ... that he learned to say what he had to say in a very short period of time because the music had to fit on one side of a 78 record."

The show is free, and there are no tickets necessary.
