Parents,


Thank you to everyone who was able to come out for our Spirit Night at Kelly Farms Burger Stand this past Tuesday. We really appreciate all of your support!


Our Fall Concert is quickly approaching on Monday, October 24th. All orchestra's are working very hard on preparing this music to you and we are looking forward to our performance! Our concert is currently set to be in the courtyard at Lovejoy High School starting at 6:30 p.m. Audience members will need to bring chairs and/or blankets to sit on during the concert. You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy during the performance. If we have bad weather that night, we will move the concert in to the gym and the start time will be 7 p.m. instead of 6:30.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Our Fall Concert is going to be held at the Lovejoy High School Courtyard. Audience members will need to bring chairs and/or blanket to sit on during the concert. This will be informal and you are welcome to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy during the performance.


If there is bad weather that evening we will move the concert indoors to the Gym. Our auditorium is currently still under construction and is unavailable for this performance. If we have to move inside the concert will start at 7 p.m. so that we can set up the gym after volleyball practice.
