LGPE this year will be held at McEachern High School in the Performing Arts Center.

Symphonic I Band will perform on Thursday, March 14th in the evening, and Symphonic II and Concert Band will perform on Friday, March 15th. The schedules for each band are listed below. Please take a time to familiarize with the details and the times for each band.

We invite all of our families and friends to attend as many of these concerts as you can! It is amazing for our students to perform for a large, energetic audience. They have worked extremely hard and are excited to show off what they can do!

Remember: We must have a signed permission form for each student! No form, no LGPE!  Contact Membership Admin with any questions.
