Congratulations to Catherine Zhou, 1st chair flute at Area and now the newest member of the Texas 5A All-State Symphonic Band! She joins Spencer Singer (All-State Jazz Ensemble) as the second All-Stater from the LT Band. Congratulations to both of you on all your hard work paying off!
Congratulations to our 2017 All-Region Band Members. After months of work, these 37 students placed in a Region 24 All-Region Band. It is an incredible honor to be selected to one of these groups. To make the ninth grade band, freshmen had to compete with all freshmen from both 5A and 6A schools in our region. To make one of the 5A bands, students had to compete with 9th-12th graders at other 5A schools in our region. Needless to say, we are incredibly proud of these students.
In addition, we had 4 students who were chosen for the All-Region Orchestra: Catherine Zhou, Arianna Parks, Arianna Bohara, and Ethan Beltran. Two of these students also advanced to the Area round and, in January, will compete for a chance to make All-State. Congratulations to Catherine Zhou, flute, and Arianna Parks, french horn.
Congratulations to these fine musicians on this wonderful accomplishment!
We would like to invite you all to our 2nd Annual Holiday Extravaganza, on Thursday, Dec. 7th, presented by the LTHS Fine Arts Department. The show will feature performances by all of the fine arts organizations and should be a fun and enriching evening. It will be held in the LTHS auditorium and admission is free.
For your convenience, we have divided the night into two shows, each featuring different performances. The first show begins at 6:00pm and will feature our Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and percussion ensembles, among other groups. The second show begins at 7:30pm and will feature our Winterguard, different percussion ensembles, and Wind Symphony.
In the spirit of the season, we are partnering with Toys for Tots for this event. If you feel inclined, please bring an unwrapped toy to the concert and help spread good tidings to a less fortunate child.
If you didn’t get a chance to order spirit wear at Registration on Wednesday night, or would like to order more, you can place orders through the store link below.

We know you will want to wear your band gear in the stands at games and contests to show your support for your student and the awesome Trailblazer Band. The kids LOVE having a large parent group cheering them on each week. The deadline to order is midnight on Wednesday, August 9th.
