It was an amazing night at Spec Martin Stadium in Deland on Saturday October 24. At 7pm, the LMHS Marching Rams took the field and wowed the crowd with their 2015 Field Show QUEEN! Judges comments were amazing and we received some of the best rating sheets ever. Nothing but pluses and A's over EVERY RATING SHEET!
I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful group of young people. Congratulations to the LMHS Marching Rams on yet another terrific STRAIGHT SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE!
ALL STATE BOUND!
The Florida Bandmasters Association and the Florida Music Education Association host an annual Music Educators Conference each January in Tampa, Florida. Thousands of students from all over the state audition for membership in the All State Bands, Orchestras and Choruses and only a small percentage are selected. This is the single highest honor that a student can achieve in their musical career. We are very proud to have Emily Kipp, Junior Flute player and Caleb Chase, Freshman Clarinet player participating in the All-State Band this year. Congrats again!
PRISM Concert in December
December 3rd is the date for our annual LMHS PRISM Concert. This concert features all our talented students who will perform works or arranged written by themselves for small groups, sections or soloists. This night is also a fundraiser night in that we have a silent auction. We are in need of help from each of you parents to help with securing items for this auction. In the past we have had Disney Tickets, Universal Tickets, Restaurant gift certificates, Rounds of Golf at local golf courses and much more. If you know of anyone who can donate to our auction, please contact them and secure an item as well as the cost of the item(s). Student sections will also be making section baskets to be auctioned off on that evening as well. The admission cost for the concert is $5 and goes directly into the band general fund. Thank you for your help in making this a great night for all our kids!
