The concert will also feature outstanding solists and small ensembles that will be competing in the Texas State Solo & Ensemble Contest on May 28th, Kingwood Park's first student ever to make the Texas All-State Band - percussionist Kyle Raney, The Symphonic Band conducted by Mr. Robbie T. Sitka, and the Wind Ensemble conducted by Mr. John Nielsen. This will be the final performance of the year for the senior band members that will be graduating from KPHS on May 26th at Reliant Stadium.
The highlight of the concert will be the premiere performance of "Battle of San Jacinto", an original composition that Texas composer Jason Nitsch has written specifically for this occasion.

Excerpts from many of the famous songs of that era in our states history will be heard strategically woven into the fabric of the composition by Mr. Nitsch.
