APPLAUSE

is the booster organization that supports the music program at Lake Forest High School

 

The music program at LFHS consists of two Orchestras, a Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Percussion Groups, and seven Choral music groups.  These groups perform challenging compositions throughout the year from a wide range of composers and genres.  They perform throughout the community and continually entertain parents, families and residents alike.  Many students are involved in more than one musical group and are encouraged to explore their musical interests to the fullest extent.

MAY MUSIC FESTIVAL CONCERTS

Sponsored by APPLAUSE

On Saturday, May 29th, students, faculty and families enjoyed the sound of music on the beautiful LFHS front lawn. The music department: Darren Barndt, Robert Bassill, Janene Kessler, Natasha Mah, Andy McBeath and Riley Worthen, enjoyed a great turn-out Memorial Day weekend. Ravinia-style, socially-distanced and masked, families and friends were invited to watch and listen to live music starting with Orchestra at 1:00pm, Choir at 2:30pm and Band at 4:00pm. The three separate concerts brought over five hundred people together on a sunny, spring day.

Many THANKS to the staff and volunteers who made this event possible.

Thank You to Donati’s Pizza and Suzy’s Swirl for providing delicious food and dessert.
