Hello, LH Band! At the end of last semester, it did not seem likely that jazz band would be offered as a class during the school day during the 21-22 school year, and it also seemed likely that LH’s wonderful jazz director, Luke Wingfield, would not be returning. I am THRILLED to announce that Mr. Wingfield is on board to return for the 21-22 school year and we have the ability to offer jazz band as a class! The jazz class will be offered 8th period. To help us know if there will be sufficient enrollment to proceed with this plan, please reply to this email to let us know if you are interested.Also, know that we also will offer a 2nd jazz band that is outside of school only if you have an interest in playing in this genre but are not able to take the class.
Thanks, everyone, and please let me know if we can assist with anything. Reagan Brumley- Fine Arts Coordinator/Director of Bands Lake Highlands High School.
Thank you all for your support at last week’s concerts. We are SO proud of how well the bands performed and felt LOTS of holiday spirit and appreciation from all of you in attendance!
