LHS band looks to inspire future Lancers
Now in its fifth year, the annual event gives the next generation of Lancers the chance to get personally acquainted with a variety of instruments, chat with high school musicians and staff members and take in a live concert geared towards the town’s youngest music fans.
The concert and fair has grown in popularity since its inception in 2010. This year’s event also featured members of the Color Guard, who offered a few onsite pointers to young guests interested in marching, baton twirling and flag-waving.
Selections from such kid-friendly films as Walt Disney’s “Aladdin” and “Frozen” were high on the set list, though a more familiar “local character” undoubtedly stole the show.
Though it was her first time conducting the band, Coltin put on a brave face — her efforts gave her a standing ovation.
“It was harder in those days,” the music director noted. “That was before cell phones.”
