6. The LHS Band Solo/Ensemble Festival will be held at LHS on 3/25 between 4pm and 8pm. More information, including a schedule, spectator information and other details will come out later this week.
Students should be practicing on a daily basis over their major and melodic minor scales and their concert music. Please be sure they are bringing instruments home to practice on a daily basis. Even if they get 10-15 minutes in, daily practice is the only way to prepare. You can't cram for an art!
As always, if you have any questions, please let Mr. Owen and Mrs. True know.
