Leestown Middle School Orchestra

* Congratulations, Gold Level Orchestra!!

The Kentucky Music Educators Association has designated The Leestown Orchestra as a Gold Level Orchestra in the Program of Excellence for the year 2014-2015!

*New Record High Enrollment for 2014-15 Leestown Orchestra: 121 total students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes!

*Superior Rating at Music in the Parks

The Leestown Middle School Orchestra was rated Superior at the Music in the Parks Music Festival at Loveland High School in Southern, Ohio on Saturday May 23.  Our group was ranked 4th out of 24 choral, band, and orchestra ensembles. At the culmination of the awards show, Mr. Wilson was presented with The Director's Award.

* Orchestra is a very successful and rewarding class at Leestown Middle School.  We are a KMEA Gold Level Program of Excellence, KMEA Distinguished Rated Ensemble, and Music in the Parks Award Winner.  Orchestra members will learn how to play an instrument, read music, make new friends, and learn life skills.

In addition to classroom rehearsals, the orchestra will present several performances this year.  These performances are required (graded) events.  Dress for our performances is a white collared shirt and black pants/skirt.  Boy’s shirts need to be tucked in.  Please do not feel you need to purchase expensive clothes for these concerts; these clothing items are available at discount clothing stores.  We are looking forward to another spectacular year of great music at LMS!
