Symphony Day spotlights young LJHS musicians
Lakeridge Junior High School students welcomed winter last week with Symphony Day, a concert featuring the talents of smartly dressed instrumentalists and singers in cobalt blue choir robes and white stoles monogrammed with the schools insignia, a pale blue, cursive L.
Their fellow students and school employees gathered in the gym to hear a seasonal selection of compositions that included The Nutcracker, with band and orchestra members separately performing versions of the classical Tchaikovsky piece.
Orchestra teacher Nita Van Pelt directed the strings performances, while choir, guitar and drum teacher Brandon Sause conducted the choir and band during the Friday event.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
