The Handbook of Texas Music: An Important New Reference Book on Texas Music History
The Center for Texas Music History
In summer 2003, the Texas State Historical Association, in collaboration with the Texas Music Office/Office of the Governor, the Center for Texas Music History at Southwest Texas State University, and the University of Texas at Austin, will publish the Handbook of Texas Music. The Handbook is an ancillary to the multi-volume New Handbook of Texas, published by the TSHA. As the first reference publication to include such a comprehensive survey of the people, places, and things involved in the development of the state’s rich and diverse musical heritage, the Handbook of Texas Music will be the definitive encyclopedia of Texas music history.
