IMG_1651Congratulations to the LSHS Band on a great performance last Friday night! The ensemble earned many great compliments from parents of band and non-band students, school administration and district administration. Best off all, many performers were very proud of their performance, but also made constructive comments on things that still need improvement, this was great to hear as a teacher! Videos of last week’s performance can be found hereThese last two weeks have been great and Mr. Bieniek is so thankful for students willing to adapt and strive to excel at new things with a new director, great student leadership and parents that made the band look great for their first game by distributing uniforms two weeks before school started.
