Summer Fun…

Can you believe it? It’s time to make summer plans already! Here are a few ideas…
 
Drum Corps at the Rose BowlLast Day to Order Tickets is May 16th!
Held on Saturday, June 30th at the Rose Bowl. This is a fun evening of watching some of the top Drum Corps. DCI is “marching music’s major league” and they take marching band to a whole new level.
 
This year, our visual tech for marching season, Brenden Yee, will be marching with Pacific Crest, and LCHS alum, Matt Miller, will be marching his fourth year with Mandarins. Also performing will be the Cadets, Blue Devils (2017 champs), Blue Knights, Vanguard and Academy. It will be a great show!
 
We will be ordering group tickets for all LC students, parents, alumni, friends, etc. They are only $20 each. If you are interested, please let Sandy know.
 
If you have never been to a DCI show before, click to view the Mandarins’ 2017 show, Inside the Ink.

Mr. Stone’s Message of the Week…

 Student Leadership is by far the backbone of the Marching Band and the Instrumental Music Program. Without them the groups get stuck. Student leaders are there to import the traditions, skills, and mindset to all the members which leads to tremendous personal growth for the leaders as well. It is important that we all understand that leaders are built, trained and educated continuously. Each success and failure brings growth and enlightenment. It is important to remember that we all need to support our student leaders, present and future, so that we all can be successful.
 
This Friday, we have a great workshop coming into our band room. Everyone should come and take advantage of this opportunity to grow and be built into a better leader.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

As we push into Band Student Leadership week, I wanted to say thank you to our current Senior Leadership and encourage our underclassmen to step up and make a difference in your band experience.
 
Leadership is not a line item on a college application, it is a stamp of oneself upon the music program through service and modeling the behavior and image we want for our program. Student leaders lead on and off the field and make the year’s many needs, obstacles, and challenges possible and successful for all. Thank you all for your service and support this year and years to come!
