When Lubbock was settled in the 1890s, having a piano was a luxury. But only a few decades later, Lubbock schools had an established music program, the town had a number of private music instructors, and by the 1920s music organizations helped educate Lubbock residents with concerts and festivals. We'll look at the work women did in these early decades of Lubbock's history to help establish the town as a musical epicenter on the South Plains, so that by the mid-1920s nationally-prominent musicians and composers performed in Lubbock.
