Under the direction of Jeremy Chung, members of the school’s Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band groups will travel to New York City to get coaching from Carnegie Hall’s professional music staff before their adjudicated concert performance together. 

“The kids had to compete with schools from all over the country for this opportunity,” said Chung. “It’s a big honor to be chosen.”

Local support has meant a lot to these music students; earlier this year, the Festival Of Arts Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to the Boosters who directly support these and additional instrumental music groups (jazz, strings, marching band, and drum line) at LBHS and Thurston Middle School. 

LBHS Artists’ Theatre is located at 625 Park Ave.
