- Summer 2021 Band Camp – The hope is that after this school year, we can return to normal and begin our regular activities as a marching band. So I’m excited to say we have officially open registration for our regular 2021 fall marching season! You can access registration the same way you did for the spring season. Simply visit lhs-band.com and click on the “marching registration” tab. All the info you need should be there. Also, in order to avoid conflicts, we are sending out the dates for summer band camp now. Please let me know if you have any questions.

- Marching Rehearsal Schedule Update – There will be no marching rehearsal on Thursday, April 22nd and Thursday, April 29th. On the 22nd I will be in Richmond helping to manage the VA All State Band Event, and the following Thursday I will be at Shenandoah University for a graduate school recital. It’s a busy, busy time of year!
- May 8th Event Updates – As you already know, May 8th is the parent premiere performance of our 2021 Spring Marching Production. We will also be combining that evening with our annual band awards night after the performance has ended. More details are to come on the specifics of the evening, but essentially, band awards night is when we honor ALL band members for their accomplishments throughout the school year. So that means all band members (not just marching members) are invited to attend this event. Students, please fill out the following google form so that we may gather the needed information to properly honor each student. Also, please cast your vote for the John Philip Sousa Award for senior band members. Lastly, since many of our usual band events didn’t occur this school year due to COVID, we will be giving out multiple, fun superlative awards. These are write-in votes, and I ask that students help us to honor each other and have a good time!
