- Program Note from score

Texas is called the Lone Star State because of the single star on its flag. Through the years, the flags of six nations have flown over Texas. Besides the United States, these nations were Spain, France, Mexico, The Republic of Texas, and the Confederate States of America. On December 29, 1845, Texas officially became the twenty-eighth state in the union. This overture is designed to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this event.
