Marching Band DVD

What a great marching band season! Thank you to all of the parents that volunteered throughout the season. I know that the staff and students appreciated your efforts.
At the banquet Monday night, a slide show highlighting various pictures that had been taken throughout the year was played. There was also a slide show of the seniors, showing their baby and senior pictures. These presentations are available to purchase for $10. If you would like to purchase the DVD, please turn in the following information with $10 in the lockbox in the band room. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Number of DVDs:
Make checks payable to Andrea Kaiser. All proceeds will be donated to the LSW Music Parent group.

Thank you!

Message to Music Parents

A message from Rick Chapman, Music Parents President:

January has been a busy month and the rest of the year will have many upcoming events and activities.

** Missouri Music Educators Association Conference was held at TanTarA Resort from January 25 to 28.

Our Una Voce Chamber Choir and our Symphonic Band performed in a packed house on Friday, January 27. Both performances brought the house down. The groups performed beyond expectations. AND they were the talk of the conference.

We thank Mrs. Krinke, Mr. Thurmond, and Mr. Harrel for the preparations of the groups.

A special thank you goes to Mark Hereford and Gene Cook for driving the equipment truck on Thursday night and returning on Friday night. On their return, just east of Osage Beach, the truck experienced a breakdown. After getting it repaired, they returned to the school around 9:00 Friday night.
