I teach Freshman Orchestra, Sinfonia Orchestra (Sophomores), JV Orchestra, and Varsity Orchestra.

Students are in the process of being issued school instruments. If they rent a school instrument the charge is $30.00 for the entire year or $15.00 a semester. Just as a reminder, all checks should be made out to LPHS Orchestra and must also include a Texas Driver's License number. Remember also to include your child's name in the memo section.

Orchestra uniforms will be issued soon and the rental fee is $10.00 for the year. Parents are responsible for hemming pants or dresses to the correct length. Students must also wear black dress shoes with their uniform. Boys will need to have a white tuxedo shirt, which is NOT the same as a white button-down collar shirt. We have a limited number of shirts if they will ask for one while we are issuing uniforms.

Students should begin to receive concert music next week. The following week (September 7 - 11) they will have their first playing test. A rehearsal schedule will be sent home (and posted on the calendar) by September 8.

Our upcoming Fall Concert is scheduled for Tuesday evening, October 13 at 7:00 PM at the Sonja Theatre.The Winter Concert is scheduled for Tuesday evening, December 15 at 7:00 PM at the Sonja Angelo Theatre.
