LCSS final band concert Thursday

The Lake City Secondary School bands final concert of the year, Thursday, June 11 starting at 7 p.m. in the Williams Lake Campus Commons.

The Lake City Secondary School bands will hold their final concert of the year on Thursday, June 11 starting at 7 p.m. in the Williams Lake Campus Commons.

The evening will feature the LCSS Jazz Band, Tour Band, Grade 9 band and senior bands.

There are 20 students in the Jazz Band,  35 students in Tour Band, 23 in Grade 9 band and 25 in senior band.

Senior students will play songs Typewriter, Arabesque, Concertino, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Some of the tunes will be those that the tour band played on their trip to Europe at spring break. Band teacher Laura Eilers says the trip was a huge success and the 19 students who made the trip, along with five chaperones and herself had a great time.

“We went to Austria and Italy and explored Vienna, Salzburg, Venice, Rome, Montecatini Terme, Florence,” Eilers says. “We had three performances over the 13 day period which provided my students with great memories as we performed in a music school outside of Salzburg, in a small town in Vienna and a quaint church in downtown Florence.”

She says the weather was beautiful except for the last two days in Rome when it rained the entire time.

“Despite the weather, we did some sight seeing and enjoyed the sights,” Eilers says.

“The best part for most of the students was having a lot of free time to walk around in Venice and do some shopping and eating lots of gelato, and of course the Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg.”

Other highlights of the trip included the Salt Mine which is on the Austria and German border, House of Music in Austria, the Coliseum and the Vatican City in Rome, exploring fortresses and visiting different basilicas.

“It was a great trip with many memories that will last a lifetime for all of us that went. There were 19 kids, 5 chaperones including myself,” Eilers adds.
