Welcome to the award-winning LASA Raptor Band! We’re excited to have you become a member of our band family!

Spring Camp (ALL Incoming and Returning Students)

We will be holding our Spring Camps on Thursday, April 21, Friday, April  22, and Saturday, April 23, 2022. Thursday and Friday will be from 4:30-6:30pm at LASA HS (meet in the band hall.) Saturday will be from 1:00-4:00pm, with a public performance at 3:00pm. All new and returning members are asked to attend. We will play get-to-know-each-other games, learn new songs and pieces, and begin working on our music for the fall semester. Wear shorts, t-shirt, and tennis shoes, and bring your own snacks and water bottle.

Auditions

Placement Auditions for incoming students will be held at LASA HS on Saturday, May 7th from 9:30am-2:00pm. The auditions will help us place students into the correct band class. All you need to do is put “BAND 1” as your 1st elective choice. The audition music is available on the website. Please click HERE to sign up for a 10-minute time slot to audition for BRASS or WOODWINDS. NOTE: Percussion will receive more info soon about audition dates/times. For now, you don’t need to sign up for a time slot.
