The Lone Star Classic Story
Through the years, the Lone Star Classic has grown to become the largest high school drumline contest in the State of Texas. The growth at the Lone Star Classic is a testament to the many dedicated drumline directors who have worked tirelessly to develop their students. With so many talented high school percussionists visiting us each year, The Lone Star Classic has become one of the most influential percussion venues in Texas. After moving to Goldsmith Stadium, the Lone Star Classic witnessed over 650 performances by more than 140 different high schools. We estimate that each year between 1,800 and 2,000 students walked through the North Gates of Goldsmith Stadium and onto the field to perform for us. In 2008, we hosted a stadium-busting 67 drumline performances.
