Markella Paradissis-Wagner – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)-The concert bands of LRHS are busy preparing for upcoming performances.

Both wind bands and jazz bands will play from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, April 7 at the Mall at University Town Center (UTC) in Sarasota. In addition, musicians who participated in Solo and Ensemble, a competition where students receive scores from the judges based on their skills, will also take the stage on Saturday evening.

The performance order is Solo and Ensembles, Symphonic Band, Solo and Ensembles, Wind Symphony, Intermission, Jazz 2, and Jazz 1.

The concert is free and open to the public, and supporters are encouraged to bring friends and family to enjoy the music. Those who prefer to sit should bring a lawn chair. The performance is a continuation of the band’s ongoing relationship with the community.

Sophomore trombonist Brandon Cox said, “I’m super stoked. I have been to UTC several times. I’ve always been impressed with how big it is. That place is huge.”
