Team behind this great Foundation

It takes a lot of work, and what is unique about Hays County's largest and most succesful festival is we are ALL volunteers. Sights & Sounds has zero paid leadership, and continues to be the shining star of Central Texas as a true example of a private-public partnership, volunteerism, philantropy, and simply giving back.  Though we have many committee members that assist with the event itself, the Foundation is run by the Directors and Ex-Officios listed below.
