Here is the schedule for next week:
The DCI schedule is not set by me. As soon as I have times I will let the students know. In the past we have been done by 10pm.
Feel free to use for personal use:
Lyceum Philharmonic at American Heritage School, led by Kayson Brown, has reached the top of the Billboard Charts, was featured on PBS with The Piano Guys, recorded for SONY Masterworks with Lexi Walker, and has been viewed over 100 million times on YouTube! These accomplished young musicians come from more than 30 schools across the state of Utah to participate in the after-school Lyceum Orchestras Program at American Heritage School in American Fork, Utah. They are part of a comprehensive program consisting of five audition-only orchestras that inspire and mentor students ages 5 to 18. They seek to: Inspire – nurture a love of elevated music, increased faith, and patriotism through purposeful events and media. Instruct – develop self-discipline, skills, and character through transformational teaching and professional-level experience and interaction. And Impact (Result of Inspiring and Instructing) – awaken individuals, families and communities to the power music has to change hearts and minds while fulfilling divine potential.Steven Sharp Nelson of The Piano Guys said, “The Lyceum Orchestras Program is an incomparable combination of everything that music is meant to be — joy, refinement, belonging, and fun. It offers kids the kind of opportunities that make music exciting and cool. It provides an environment that isn’t blindly affixed upon purposeless perfection, but rather a more selfless pursuit of excellence. My favorite part of Lyceum is its inherent spirituality. There is a special feeling suggesting a profound development not only of the body and mind, but of the soul.”
We have been asked by the administration to administer this survey to our students at the end of each trimester. Students only please take a minute to fill this survey out.
Check where I’m planning you on being next fall. It looks like it will be a great year. If you have questions or concerns contact me.
You should all register for this opportunity. It is not required, but you would be foolish to not do it. Seniors it is a last chance to play some new music before you leave us. Don’t miss the chance.
It’s time to start planning for the next Marching Band Season. We will be again hosting some Saturday events to introduce what we do to potential students. The first such event will be held on March 3rd in the band room at the HS. The other dates include April 7, and two Saturdays in May.
We are in the process of creating an Honor Band for the region. The dates for that have not been set yet, but will likely require us to cancel one of the May MB clinics. As soon as that information is locked in we will update you.
Either way you will want to keep both May 12 and 19 free for band.
Want to win some money? Have a composition idea? Why not try your luck?
Students may now apply to be in a National Honors Ensemble.
We are excited to announce that applications are NOW OPEN for the 2018 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles. This year’s event will take place November 25-28, 2018 at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. The 2018 program will also include our first-ever All-National Honor Guitar Ensemble! Attached please find the 2018 promotional flyer, and ensemble selection procedure.
