Russ-Town presents holiday music
The community will soon be treated to a concert by the Russ-Town Band.
Lawrence Gibbs, conductor of the 50-member band and an associate professor of music at Louisiana Tech University, said the group plays concert-band music.
“We’ve been around since 1994,” Gibbs said. “The Dixie Center for the Arts has kind of been our home for many years. We play overtures, popular tunes and music from the orchestral literature.”
The band typically plays two concerts each year at the Dixie — one during the Louisiana Peach Festival and another around Christmas, which is right around the corner.
