Magnolia Brass Band Festival

Saturday, March 24, 2:30

Bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets and join the Lamar University Bands for an outdoor afternoon band festival commemorating the "March King" John Phillip Sousa's four Beaumont visits in 1906, 1919, 1924, and 1928. This concert will celebrate the music of the Magnolia Band, a local Beaumont band conducted by Harry Cloud and his Magnolia Refinery bandsmen (now a part of ExxonMobil) as conducted by Sousa in January 1924. At that time, Lamar University was beginning its second semester and the Magnolia Band was nationally famous for playing the inaugural broadcast of KFDM ("For Dependable Magnoline") on Beaumont's first radio station. The afternoon festival will feature Lamar University's bands and the Community Band of Southeast Texas playing music from America's "Golden Age," when Beaumont was a booming oil town, in the historical reproduction setting of the Spindeltop Museum. Free admission.
