LBHS Musicians to Perform at Carnegie Hall

Laguna Beach High School’s instrumental music groups have been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in April 2019. Under the direction of Jeremy Chung, members of the school’s Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band groups will travel to New York City to get coaching from Carnegie Hall’s professional music staff before their adjudicated concert performance together.


“The kids had to compete with schools from all over the country for this opportunity,” said Chung. “It’s a big honor to be chosen.”

Local support has meant a lot to these music students. Earlier this year, the Festival of Arts Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to the Boosters who directly support these and additional instrumental music groups (jazz, strings, marching band, and drum line) at LBHS and Thurston Middle School.

The community is invited to come hear these LBHS students perform holiday music at a free winter concert at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 10, in the LBHS Artists’ Theatre, 625 Park Avenue
