Some fine arts programs will soon be going on spring trips with the band heading to Corpus Christi from April 28-May 1, the orchestra going to San Antonio from April 1-4, and the choir going to Austin from April 1-3.  

“We will perform at a very long standing spring band contest, The Buccaneer Days Festival,” Band Director Paul Heuer said. “We will visit the Texas State Aquarium and a lot of beach and pool time.”

Even though the Band and Orchestra are both going on a spring trip they have many different plans for their getaways.

“We are competing in the Alamo Showcase of Music on Friday April 1st,” Orchestra Director Mary Winkler said. “Then the rest of the time we will be doing sightseeing, Seaworld, and Fiesta Texas.”

For the band, “95% of them” will be competing multiple pieces.

“The Wind Symphony will be playing The Circus Bee, Ave Maria, and La Fiesta Mexicana,” Heuer said. “The Symphonic Band will be performing Burma Patrol, Shine, and West Highlands Sojourn.”

Orchestra’s trip “is open to all students but most are going.”

“Our goal of the trip is to perform well on the competition and encourage a family atmosphere among all orchestra students,” Winkler said. “We will have two separate orchestras performing and their music is yet to be chosen.”

These trips are not just for leisure.

“It is important for our performing groups to go on tour each year out of our area to be exposed to world class adjudicators and venues,” Heuer said. “This also gets the word out on the work we are doing in the band department at LHS to musicians outside of the DFW area.”

About the Writer
Katie Felton, TRL Reporter

Senior Katie Felton, a four year Red Ledger staffer who suffers from severe senioritis, cannot wait to be done with high school. But, since she is stuck there until June, she is determined to make her last year her best year. As a part of making the 2017-2018 school year the best one yet, Felton created her schedule only with classes she enjoys going to, such as newspaper and art. Sadly, she was forced to include core classes. Newspaper has been a passion of Felton’s since middle school when she was one day added to the class, and she’s been a part of it every year since. Along with a love for journalism, Felton also has a soft spot for art– sculpture, to be exact. If she is not at school, she is probably working or with friends, as she’s not a big fan of sitting at home and doing nothing. Even though Felton already has one foot out the door, she adores newspaper, and it will be one of the very few things she will miss from her years at Lovejoy High School.
