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.
