LPHS’s spring concert
LAKE PLACID – The Music Department of Lake Placid High School will present a spring concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 15 in the school auditorium.
The program will feature performances by the High School Chorus, Band, Jazz Band and Women’s Ensemble. The High School Art Exhibit will be on display in the Foyer. The public is invited to attend and support the Arts in Lake Placid Schools.
The Lake Placid High School Band, under the direction of Emileigh Kukuvka, will perform a fun circus march arranged by Andrew Glover and a Majors level piece called “Novena.” They will finish the concert program with music from the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.”
The Lake Placid High School Chorus, under the direction of Kimberly Weems and accompanied by Kathryn Cross, will perform an arrangement of the Scottish folk song, “Loch Lomond.” They will also perform selections from the concert-length work “Considering Matthew Shepard” by Craig H. Johnson. The work is based onthe life and death of a young Wyoming college student who died as a result of a hate crime in Wyoming in 1998. The music explores what we have learned since that time and where we can go from that place and time to reach a better understanding and celebration of our differences.
The chorus will also present a video of their recent performance at the Marketplace Stage in Walt Disney World. The Chorus performed in concert on April 3. They also attended a Disney Sings workshop and learned voice-over skills to apply to animation. The chorus is very grateful for the support of the community and school in this endeavor.
