Both the LHWHS Symphonic Band and the Symphonic Orchestra have been invited to perform at the 2019 Missouri Music Educators Association convention in January 2019.

Both groups submitted recordings of this past year’s performances, and were selected by a panel of judges that listened to over 200 groups from across the state. Four high school orchestras were selected, and five high school bands were selected. The Ladue Schools students are the only groups of their kind selected from the St. Louis area.

“This is our version of winning a state championship,” Director of Bands Aaron Lehde said. “Thank you to all of our Ladue Schools community for the support of our programs—it makes a huge difference. I’m very proud of everyone’s hard work and dedication.”
