Thanks to the hard work of the students and also the help of the many parent volunteers who help keep contest running smoothly.
This past weekend, the following LSW Band students participated in the MSHSAA District Solo and Ensemble Festival. They represented our outstanding institution with musical excellence and class. I am so proud to be associated with these fine young musicians. Please let them know that you are proud of them as well as you see them in class.
Earning a “I” rating qualifies the musician to perform again at the MSHSAA State Music Festival on April 27 at the University of Missouri in Columbia.
