Band Boosters Update 3-30-17
Hello Band Families,
Winter Guard at CWEA Championships – Saturday, March 25 at Rock Hill
Both LHS winter guards competed in the CWEA Indoor Championships this past Saturday in Rock Hill. CWEA is an organization that encompasses several southern states and sponsors competitions for guards and indoor percussion units.
The LHS JV Guard placed 2nd in Scholastic Novice Class and the Varsity Guard place 3rd in Scholastic A Class. These are very high placements, and we are very proud of both of our indoor guards. These students and their staff have had an outstanding season! Congratulations!
Note to Winter Guard Parents who are joining the Booster Club – the membership form is available on catband.com under Booster Club tab and checks are made out to LHSBB. Please attach check to form when turning in to the band box.
SC Day of Percussion
This past Saturday, LHS hosted the South Carolina Day of Percussion. The LHS Percussion Ensemble received a rating of excellent for their performance. Individual soloists included Akeem Dysard (superior) and Jacob Espinoza (excellent). In addition to these performances, the percussion students attended concerts and clinics throughout the day featuring nationally-recognized percussionists in the areas of rudimental drumming, jazz, drum set, Latin percussion and traditional percussion performance. Congratulations to our students for an outstanding performance and great work in hosting this state-wide event.
