After lunch, the students will load the bus and travel to LCE to perform. After the last performance, the students will return to LCHS, unload the bus, and be dismissed for the day.

If you have questions, please contact Mr. Myers.

Festival Volunteers & Donations

Each year we host a Festival for our students as well as students from the surrounding area.

At Festival, each group performs selected pieces and sight reading for several judges. The judges give them comments and a rating. It’s a great learning and performance experience for the students and their directors.

This year we will have 14 area schools coming to our campus to perform at Festival. The MPA will host a snack stand for the students to purchase snacks and drinks.

Volunteer

We need several helpers to get us set up on Friday morning, 7:30am-9am. Please consider helping… Many hands make for light work. Please let Cecilia Cheng know if you would like to help.
