Since 1980, the Oak Lawn Symphonic Band has served Dallas and its gay community both by performing locally and nationally at such events as the inauguration ceremonies of both Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, all of the Gay Games, the March on Washington, and many concerts and parades. Today, the Oak Lawn Band performs for private events as well as publicly with a concert season that runs from September through June and at Dallas' annual Texas Freedom Parade.

We are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to advancing music and the arts around Dallas, the state of Texas, and the world for the gay and lesbian community and its allies.


The Oak Lawn Band, Inc. dedicates itself to serving the LGBTQ+ community and its causes as well as other communities within Texas and the United States. As such, we provide a welcoming and supportive environment for performers regardless of gender identity, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and musical ability. The Oak Lawn Band, through performance and other activities, provides educational, cultural, and social enrichment for its members and audience.


We are in need of new percussion and marching brass instruments to accommodate the explosive growth of the band in the last two years. We'd like to purchase 6 sousaphones, 9 baritones, 6 mellophones, 3 snares, 2 bass drums, and 2 tenor sets.
