We have been made aware of a facilities conflict for MSBOA Marching Band Festival in October. We are currently working with the administration to resolve this issue. Solutions may involve a) moving the date of hosting festival to Tuesday, October 11th or b) not hosting festival and traveling to festival at another school. As soon as a resolution is agreed upon, we will update the calendar and notify all involved.

TRIP INFORMATION MEETING - Thursday, September 15th. CLICK HERE for the meeting on ZOOM!

CLICK HERE to see alterations to the Orlando trip. The cost of the trip is a little more than first anticipated. However, we believe this to be a maximum price. Much of the cost of the trip will be based on how many buses we need, and how many seats we fill. There will be an informational meeting on Thursday, September 15th at 7:00pm via Zoom. Registration for the trip will begin when we return in the fall.

Initial Trip Information

In the Spring of 2023, members of the performing arts department at LCN (Choirs, Concert Bands, and Marching Band) will be eligible to attend the Fine Arts trip to Orlando, Florida. Below you will find three links. The first is information from Mr. Griffith about the trip. The second is the proposed itinerary from the travel company. The final link is a survey we would like all non-senior instrumental music families to take, regardless of their decision to attend the trip.
