DSHS band director begins final season

If you'll recall, River City was never the same after the Music Man came to town. The same may be said for Dripping Springs, after Keith Lancaster steps down as director of the Dripping Springs High School Band.

Lancaster is retiring at the end of the Fall semester. He leaves a stellar legacy of marching band and performance excellence, a plethora of trophies and accolades, and a lifetime of sharing his passion for music with thousands of students.

"For me, a passion for music began as a sixth grader, when band directors came to our school to make a presentation about the band and recruit young musicians," the director recalled during a rare free day during summer vacation. "I remember going home and asking my parents if I could be in the band."
