The Latest from the LCHS Instrumental Music Program

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

Over the weekend, the SCSBOA All Southern California High School Honor groups streamed their performances. There are three freshman Orchestra members, Rachel C., Victoria P. violins; and Lucy K., cello, who participated in the Symphonic Orchestra performance of the Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar. Listen to their performance below. Bravo and Congratulations, girls!

SAT / ACT Practice Tests

This practice test is for ALL students. Students do not need to be music program or LCHS students,  so invite your friends! (All students need to say they are registering for the “LCHS MPA Fundraiser”).

At $20, this is a GREAT deal for every student from Freshmen and Sophomores who want exposure to the tests, to Juniors and Seniors to take multiple times to prep for the actual tests, and to decide whether they test better on SAT or ACT.

All proceeds go to the Music Parents Association, so sign-up today!

Boosters Raffle – Extended to April 30th!

Extended to April 30th!

The 7-12 Instrumental Music Department, including Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard is participating again in the Spartan Booster’s Raffle this year!

Previously, this had been a printed raffle ticket fundraising event, but due to COVID restrictions it has been moved online and is easy to do! There are great raffle prizes too!

Now you can contact your friends and family all over the U.S. to donate and have a chance of winning some cool prizes, while supporting your student directly, as well as the Music Program. It’s actually easier!

We would greatly appreciate your support by encouraging your family and friends to make a donation to the Spartan Booster Club using the Raffle link. 100% of each donation of any amount will go directly to the Instrumental Music Program (which includes 7/8 and high school), and will earn 5 raffle tickets for a chance to win one of 3 great prizes.

Raffle prizes include:

  • First Prize: Fender 10th Anniversary Hellcat Guitar
  • Second Prize: Holy Stone Drone Package
  • Third Prize: $200 Los Gringos Locos Gift Card

In addition to supporting the Instrumental Music Program, your LCHS student will earn credit towards their student account. The first $40 of the donations attributed to your student goes to the MPA to help fund the Instrumental Music Program. 100% of all donations above $40 attributed to your student will credit their individual MPA student account to be used for Instrumental Music Program costs, travel, and other items.

Please follow these instructions for donating and giving your student credit:

  1. Click Here
  2. Choose “Focused Donation” and select from the pull-down menu: “Instrumental Music – Band / Orchestra” OR “Color Guard”
  3. Fill in “Which LCHS Student Referred You” with the name of the student who referred you. (This step is important for students to receive credit for each donation referral).
  4. To Enter the Raffle: Go back to the Donation page and click on the “Raffle Entry Window” on the right-hand side of the page, enter the required information and transaction ID number.

Good Luck! And once again, the 7/8 & high school Instrumental Music Program (Band, Orchestra, and Color Guard) thank you for your continued support throughout this difficult year.

Mr. Stone’s Thought of the Week…

It was great being back into a new normal! A lot to adjust to, but it was great to actually hear music as a group again, and see some faces I haven’t seen in person for almost a year! Looking forward to playing more music, building skills, and having fun over the next few weeks! Have a great week!

Ms. Munday’s News & Notes…

It was like old times, almost, to be back at school last week and see colleagues and students! Hearing the first notes of music being played together was wonderful! As the next weeks go by, I’m sure we will get into a meaningful daily rhythm for everyone. Have a great week!
