LEISD Percussion Concert

Big picture
The LEISD Percussion presented their cluster concert on Saturday night, February 29th. All percussionists from LEHS, Lakeside, and Prestwick performed at this event. There was also a special performance by the Rockin' Rhythms of Lakeview Elementary. All of these students performed very well on a wide variety of music, including performing on buckets, chairs and stands, as well as the traditional percussion equipment. These students are to be commended on both their professionalism and performance! Thank you also to Mr. Neal for his incredible work with these students across the district! Bravo!
