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.

Welcome to

Our family entertaining yours!

L'Anse Creuse High School - North Instrumental Music is under the direction of Mr. Daniel Griffith and assistant Mr. Anthony Berardi and includes three full concert bands, winter percussion ensemble and a marching band of over 70 members.  Both the Marching Crusaders and the LCN Percussion drumline are competitive circuit programs locally to the area.

Crusader Bands have established a reputation of excellence through inclusion and integrity in marching, concert, and auxiliary programs. The band has consistently earned exemplary awards at MSBOA state competitions, receiving first division ratings in marching, concert, and sight reading contests.


What a better way to know what is going on than to join us at our monthly meetings the 3rd Thursday every month at 7:00 pm in the Band Room. 

Next meeting:

DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED, 2022 at 7:00pm in the band room.

Simple Fundraising Opportunities!

RESTAURANT NIGHTS - Occasionally the band boosters arrange restaurant fundraisers. A local restaurant will arrange a period of time where a portion of sales will be donated back to the Band Boosters. Usually, a flier is needed to be brought with you. See the booster emails and the website calendar for dates and fliers.

KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS program is easy, just enroll with your Kroger Rewards card and a percentage of your normal purchases go to the band. If you don't already have an online account, create one and enter your Kroger Card number. Then click Kroger Community Rewards under the Savings & Rewards tab. Use the NOP# TY146 when you get to the enrollment screen. Then leave it to Kroger to donate quarterly.

AMAZON SMILE is another way for LCN Band to get credit for your normal shopping. Just log in to amazon by using the special link and shop as normal. You will need to register and select L'Anse Creuse North Band Boosters as the organization. Bookmark the link, because you must log in through the link for your purchases to count.
