EGAN BAND/ORCHESTRA INTRODUCTION TO LAHS
We have several activities to help Egan studentsí transition to the music program at Los Altos High School.
The first this year will be a field trip to learn about the LAHS marching band. All 7th and 8th grade band and orchestra students will go on this field trip. It will take place on Wednesday, November 5, 2008, beginning before school starts. Buses will pick us up at Egan at 8:15 a.m. and we will return to school around 10:00 a.m.
The next event will involve only orchestra students - they will participate and perform at String Night at LAHS on Friday evening, January 30, 2009. This is an opportunity to perform at the high school, and to hear the LAHS orchestra groups perform.
The next event will involve the 8th grade orchestra. They will take a trip to LAHS to rehearse with the LAHS orchestra sometime in early February during a school day. Then both 7th and 8th grade orchestras will participate in Strictly Strings rehearsal and concert at LAHS on Feb. 11 and 12 in the evening.
The next event will involve only band students. They will participate in LAHS Band Night on the evening of March 28.
At several times throughout the school year, Mr. Ferrucci, the band and orchestra director at LAHS, WILL VISIT Egan to work with, talk with, and answer questions from Egan students about the LAHS music program. Sometimes he is able to bring current high school students with him.
