LHS Spring Concert/Events Update
The Spring Concert will be at LHS on Wednesday, May 20th. All band members should report at 7:00 PM to warm up. When you arrive at LHS you will report to the band room. It is important that you are in the band room with your instrument out ready to warm up at the report time. We are sharing this concert with both high school choirs. They will perform first beginning at 7:00 PM. We will need to warm up quietly while they are performing on the stage. We will be giving band and choir awards at this concert and recognizing the Fine Arts Hall of Fame recipients. The concert attire is the red polo, black pants, shoes and socks. Ladies may choose to wear more “stylish” shoes if you wish.
