Our annual Spring Choir Trip has become a favorite LHS Choral Department tradition. Each spring, choir members vote to choose the competition in which they will participate the following spring. Past competitions have taken us to Atlanta, New York City, Orlando, San Antonio, and San Diego. In 2008, the choirs travelled on their first international trip, performing in Italy for audiences in Rome, Florence, and Venice, and in 2012, our choirs performed internationally in Prague, Vienna, and Salzburg, including the Young Prague International Music Festival where they received gold and silver medals.
This year, we will be going to San Diego!
