The LPS Orchestras, under the direction of Mrs. Paula Turner, will present their Festival Spotlight Concert on Thursday evening, February 24 at 6:30 pm in the LPS Gymnasium.  Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $5.00 per person to benefit the ongoing growth of the orchestra program.  Both the Beginning Orchestra (first year students) and the Concert Orchestra (students with 2+ years of experience) will perform.  The music will highlight the students’ work of the third quarter of school and includes the Beginning Orchestra’s rendition of perennial favorite Entry of the Tumblers. The Concert Orchestra will take you on a journey through time with the beautiful Irish folk song Where the River Shannon Flows and concluding with an arrangement of a Telemann Sinfonia, the original dating back to the early 18th century.

The Concert Orchestra heads to the WTSBOA Concert Festival in Memphis on March 9 for annual regional adjudication in stage performance and sight-reading, so Thursday’s concert is serving as a test drive of the music they are preparing for the judges.  Audience members will be provided with Applause-a-Grams for sending shout-outs and best wishes to all of the orchestra members to congratulate them for their current accomplishments.

All music lovers are invited to attend! For more information, please email Mrs. Turner at pturner@lakelandk12.org
