    • Capitol of Texas in Austin


    Lee County Day at the Capitol

     March 3, 2015

    The Giddings Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring Lee County Day at the Capitol. Two years ago the community was able to take twelve local citizens and community leaders to the Capitol to meet with our State Senator and Representative. We are again preparing for a full day of legislative work in Austin. Our citizens are encouraged to participate in all levels of State government.


    Every citizen has a voice and by visiting with your state legislators you impart important information about our county, cities and communities.

    We are leaving the Chamber office on Tuesday morning at 6AM. City, county, community and business leaders are encouraged to get involved. There are several important topics that will be the focus of our visits. We will leave at 6AM and return by 5PM. We will visit Senator Lois Kolkhorst’s office and the newly elected representative. We will visit both the Senate and House Chambers and we will eat lunch.

    There are four topics that seem to be at the forefront of people’s minds this session. We will want to discuss several issues, including water rights, transportation, education and jobs. These four issues affect our whole county. Contact the Chamber office if you have specific questions.

    Call to reserve you spot. 979-542-3455.

    Deadline to participate is February 26th.


    Thanks to our sponsors-

    Ray Wylie Hubbard Concert, April 3, 2015, to Benefit Festival Hill

    In August 2011, Ray Wylie Hubbard came to Festival Hill to record what would become The Grifter's Hymnal album. The famed country-blues singer/songwriter/musician is returning to Festival Hill on Friday, April 3, 2015 at 7:30 pm to play an indoor benefit concert to raise funds for student scholarships awarded to the young artists attending the 2015 Round Top Music Festival.

    A friend of Festival Hill, Ray Wylie Hubbard became familiar with Round Top Festival Institute after discovering the extraordinary acoustics of the Edythe Bates Old Chapel. He spent a week at Festival Hill recording tracks for The Grifter's Hymnal album, released in 2012. See links to his self-described experience at Festival Hill below.

    Ray's official bio describes him as a "scrapper poet with the devil-may-care wherewithal" whose "ragged-but-right vocals and lyrical wits continue to get better and better with age." Ray has been performing and writing songs since the '60s. Well known for penning the words to "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother," made famous by Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray has come from "the wild and wooly cosmic/outlaw Texas country scene of the '70s" to being "one of the most respected artists on the modern Americana scene."

    Join us for an exciting evening as Ray Wylie Hubbard performs on the grand stage of the Festival Concert Hall-one of the most beautiful and acoustically astounding concert halls in the world.

         Click here and "Take a virtual tour" to view the interior of the magnificent hall Ray will perform in.

    Purchase your tickets online here.  $35 per ticket, all ages, general seating. Click "View Prices and Purchase" to select the number of tickets and pay securely with a major credit card. No refunds. All sales final. Tickets will be held at the will call table on the West side of the concert hall. For more information call the Institute office at 979-249-3129.

    About the Round Top Music Festival...
         Each summer, advanced classical music students come to Round Top to work with faculty and conductors in a six-week program to study and improve their performance skills. Students are selected through a rigorous blind audition process. To allow student participation based on talent and merit alone, each student is awarded a full scholarship to remove any economic barrier. Round Top Festival Institute must find other ways to cover the costs incurred in producing the Summer Music Festival. The proceeds from the Ray Wylie Hubbard Concert will greatly help to defray these costs.

    Read Ray's testimonial about recording in the Edythe Bates Old Chapel.

    Ray talks about recording "New Year's Eve at the Gates of Hell" (The Grifter's Hymnal album, 2012) in the Edythe Bates Old Chapel at Round Top Festival Institute:

    Ray and his band performed "Mother Blues" (The Grifter's Hymnal album, 2012) on The David Letterman Show, January 9, 2012:  Ray Wylie Hubbard Does Letterman.
