Southlake, Texas – Arts Council Northeast and the City of Southlake are pleased to welcome Southlake Community Band & Swing Band for a concert on May 10, 2014, at Southlake Town Square from 7:30 p.m.- 9:00 p.m..
In January 1992, the Southlake Community Band was formed. At that time, the band was called the Lake Cities Community Band. Larry Samaritan, a professional musician in the New York/New Jersey area since age 15, accepted the baton as the first conductor of the Band. The group’s first performance was given on April 3rd, 1992, as the finale act of the Carroll High School Variety Show. The performance was great, the standing ovation was deafening, and the Band’s foundation for the future was firmly laid.
In 1997, the Southlake Community Band was accepted for Affiliate Membership in the Arts Council Northeast. Now boasting nearly 70 members, the Southlake Community and Swing Bands are a vital part of the vibrant northeast Tarrant County arts and entertainment community.
Through the MasterWorks Series, Arts Council Northeast and the City of Southlake present free performances on selected evenings throughout the year. The MasterWorks Series is designed to offer a variety of quality family entertainment to the community by utilizing the talent of local, regional, and national artists.
