Trip to Troy • January 31, 2019

Our wind ensemble is traveling to Troy, AL on Thursday, January 31, 2019 to perform at the welcoming concert for the Southeastern United States Honor Band Clinic.  We received this invitation by submitting letters of recommendation and a last year’s LGPE performance recording.  Our group was chosen by an assessment process and we are very excited for this prestigious opportunity.

We are collecting money for breakfast and lunch.  Please bring $15.00 in before we leave for the trip.  $15 will pay for a Chick-fil-a breakfast and CiCi’s pizza buffet for lunch.  Please follow this link: to order your breakfast if you haven’t done it yet.
