Ending on a Good Note with Fine Art Performances

Spread the love

Nearing the end of a very unprecedented school year, the Fine Arts Programs here at Lamar are still going strong. Students from different programs and fine arts groups have prepared to display their hard work and perseverance in these upcoming days. They prepared performances for other students and family and now eagerly wait to give the audience a sense of enjoyment ‘like old times’.

The band program’s spring concert is on Thursday, April 29th at 7 pm. This event will be held in the new Center for Visual and Performing Arts for AISD. Percussion ensemble, jazz band, freshman band, upperclassman band, and the symphony orchestra are among the Lamar Band students set to perform! Due to social distancing regulations, this will be a ticketed event with limited seats.

In addition, many different choir groups also prepared music that they will be performing for an audience. At 7 pm on Tuesday, May 18, the Lamar Choirs will hold an outdoor concert near the Promenade entrance. Audience members can sit in their cars or bring chairs to enjoy the concert socially distanced from each other.

“It’s gonna be a fun night!” said choir director Mr. Haugen.

More information about other performances will be available soon. We hope to see a lot of support for these groups that have been working extra hard this year!
