Lassiter Bands Sparkle at Large Group Performance Evaluation
What an incredible representation we had during performance evaluations! So many wonderful performances, especially from our own four concert bands. All of our band performances were simply amazing. I hope everyone had a chance to listen and enjoy each of our bands. Each group hit it out of the ball park! Again, all Lassiter concert bands received superior ratings. Our tradition of musical excellence continues.
A huge congratulations and thank you to all of the parent volunteers who ran this event so smoothly. There were so many compliments from the directors about our boosters. You were so helpful and efficient. Thank you so much for all of your time.
A special thank you to Joel Boss and Mike Lynch for always taking care of our percussionists so the directors don’t have to worry about a thing.
