Ok, all you Forest Glen folks… we will be up first this year. Our concert is the PTA meeting on December 14 at the FGMS auditorium. All students should be working hard on their concert music. It may seem like a looooonnnnnngggggg way off but it is actually right around the corner. I try to remind them that we can’t wait to learn the music until we are in the holiday spirit! Dress for this program is black on the bottom and white, red, or green holiday colors on top. We can be festive and fun, but no T shirts with words written on them, please. Do your best to look the part of a performer on stage! Girls… NO SHORT SKIRTS! Also, leave the jeans home that night. A fun time is always had by all at this event. Can’t wait to see all of you there!
LHS will be the grand finale this year. Our Band/Orchestra/Chorus Holiday program will be in our auditorium on December 21. High school orchestra dresses in all black. Guys… you don’t need a coat and tie, but I do ask that the shirt be a dress shirt. If you want to wear a festive holiday tie, that might be fun. Walmart has them in stock for a steal this time of year but remember that kids all over Tidewater will be shopping for music programs so don’t wait too long! Be sure to be dressed up, folks. Please leave jeans and T shirts home. You are ON STAGE after all. I hope that all will be in attendance. We look forward to having a great program and sending the school off to break with a great feeling of holiday spirit.

Happy new school year, everyone!!!
I trust that all of you had a great summer. I know that many of you played at music camps, took lessons, and came to our Wednesday drop in sessions at Forest Glen. Those of you who need to rediscover your violin, viola, cello, or bass, never fear. You will pick things back up in no time (or else) Remember, my cell is my work number if you need me after hours. It is 642 2339. Call and leave a message if I don’t pick up. You can also use school email, of course. email@example.com is the best to use.
Looking forward to a GREAT year of music making and growth. See you soon.
Mrs Sitzler, orchestra director
Lakeland High School and Forest Glen Middle School
ps: after this welcome note, school specific notes will be color coded for your quick “at a glance” check for info pertaining to you.

the LHS chamber orchestra puts Lakeland on the map

Wow! What a week. The Chamber Orchestra and Cavalier Singers have returned from our life changing experience trip to New Orleans LA. We met area high school students and played together. We visited an amazing church, Trinity Episcopal, where we heard a HUGE pipe organ and then performed. The workshop at Loyola was focused on what is important about music. It was wonderful to see Dr. Montes again and have him work with us. The concert Wednesday night was our best performance to date. It was a total sharing, a true orchestra sound and playing with the organist on Rhosymedre was an added treat. No looking back ever again. We aren’t going that way. We will move forward to bigger and better. Truly a memory that will last for years and years to come. Congrats, LHS… you are on the map!
