Students have the opportunity to perform in various percussion ensembles throughout the year while exploring both contemporary and traditional repertoire. In 2018, the LSE Percussion Ensemble was selected to perform a Showcase Concert for the annual Nebraska Music Education Association conference.
LSE has three concert ensembles that meet in 2nd semester. They are:
Symphonic Band (non-auditioned 10-12)
Wind Ensemble (auditioned 9-12)
Concert Band (non-auditioned 9th grade)
Students perform in a traditional concert band setting during these band classes. Students also develop fundamental ensemble playing skills and rehearse percussion ensemble music during this time.
