About Us

lThe Kilgore Community Concert Association was founded in 1947 and has offered memberships for a variety of instrumental music, vocalists, dance and uncategorized live performances.  Typically, we have 4-6 concerts per year for a seasonal subscription. The season begins in the fall (usually September) and concludes in the spring (usually March).

Concerts are held in Dodson Auditorium on the Kilgore College campus. Generous donations from members and friends have made us able to keep membership cost at a reasonable cost for everyone.

The Association is non-profit with an all volunteer Board of Directors.


Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring quality live entertainment to the area for a reasonable price.  When it is possible, we have a performance (matinee or master’s class) for our local schools. The school to receive the performance is selected by the superintendent of Kilgore Schools.
