Announcements 5/13/2017

Concerts – It’s here! Concert week! The spring band concert is May 16th. Viking Thunder (percussion only) is May 17th. The final symphony orchestra concert is May 18th. This year, some of the freshman have the opportunity to perform with the JV full orchestra. Should be a wonderful series of concerts to end the instrumental fine arts calendar year! Then to cap of a great school year, we have the 2nd picnic in the park.


Spring concert – WS will report at 6:00pm in the orchestra hall, FB will report at 6:00pm in the band hall, SB will report at 6:15pm on the stage for warm up. There will be a tribute to the seniors at the end of the concert. We will also have a light reception in the cafeteria after the event.


Picnic in the Park – On May 20th we have two big events! The final out-with-a-bang event is the picnic in the park. This year we will hold the event at Lamar on the practice fields behind the new MAC. See the flyer attached. The other event is the Lamar cluster solo festival.


Solo & ensemble festival – The Lamar HS solo & ensemble festival will be held at Lamar on May 20th in the morning. Students will perform their solo or ensemble for a judge. They will be scored and given a rating. This will be directly reflected in the grade book as a major performance grade.
