* 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!
