Prism concert highlights LRHS musical diversity

Markella Paradissis-Wagner – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS annual Prism Concert is at 6:30 p.m., Dec. 15 in the LRHS auditorium. The audience entry fee is $5.

All Lakewood Ranch bands will perform, featuring the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic and Freshman Bands, along with the Color Guard, Percussion Section and Jazz Bands 1 and 2. Additionally, every section of the Marching Mustangs will perform a prepared piece, including original skits, and a last official standstill performance of the year of their competitive show, “Twelve Seconds to the Moon.”

The show portrays man’s conquest of the skies, beginning with the Wright brothers’ first 12 second flight ranging to astronauts taking the initial steps on the moon. “Twelve Seconds to the Moon” shows the excitement of flying combined with the grandness of reaching the heavens.

Band Captain and mellophone player Zephaniah Weaver, senior, said, “I’m always excited for Prism. It’s amazing that we’re able to find a really fun way to fundraise but also showcase everyone in the band program. It’ll also be a last performance of an amazing show that has truly developed throughout the season.”

The Annual Prism Concert is also the band program’s third largest fundraiser. Multiple baskets will be up for bid for the Silent Auction at starting at 6:30 p.m.

“The Prism Concert is important because it shows all of the facets of our band program not only to the audience but to all of the students who don’t always get to see what each group is up to,” stated band director Ron Lambert.
