Subject: LCPAA - Concert Bands Message - ISSMA Contest 4/6/2019
Date: April 4th 2019

The Lawrence Central Symphonic Band and Concert Band will be performing at Decatur High School on Saturday, April 6th for the ISSMA Large Organization District Concert Band Contest (further details in the attached itinerary).  Two Lawrence Central Choirs, Sophisticates and Symphonic Choir will also attend ISSMA this weekend, performing at Decatur Central. 


ISSMA Organizational Contest is similar to "ISTEP" for performing arts. This event allows our students to showcase the skills and repertoire they have been learning and preparing all year for a panel of professional musicians. Students will then be judged and scored based on a state wide rubric that reflects the level of musicianship and preparation they demonstrate in their performance. Lawrence Central's Performing Arts Department has a long tradition of earning Gold ratings at this event with all performing ensembles each year, which could not be possible without EVERY students' contribution to their ensemble's performance. For this reason, attendance is imperative for our students to perform the best program they've had yet! Please see the attached Itinerary/permission slip for further details pertaining to this event.


For this trip, we are in need of 6-8 chaperones. If you are interested, please email or call Ms. Trapani or Mr. James and plan on reporting to LC at 10:00 am.
