Week of 10.10-10.14


We hope that everyone enjoyed their long weekend and spent some time outside in the gorgeous weather.

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.

Leopard Friday is on Friday, October 14th. If you are available to volunteer please sign up by clicking this link:

Have a wonderful weekend!
