Welcome to

L'Anse Creuse High School - North Instrumental Music is under the direction of Mr. Daniel Griffith and assistant Mr. David Mety and includes four full concert bands, winter percussion ensemble and a marching band of 150+ members.  Both the Marching Crusaders and the LCN Percussion drumline are competitive circuit programs locally to the northern Detroit, Michigan area.

Crusader Bands have established a reputation of excellence through inclusion and integrity in marching, concert, and auxiliary programs. The band has consistently earned exemplary awards at MSBOA state competitions, receiving first division ratings in marching, concert, and sightreading contests.

What's happening right now?

Don't forget that next Tuesday March 3rd is the bd's Mongolian Grill party where Mr Mety and other Drumline staff will be Guest Grilling......and c'mon, who doesn't want Mr Mety to make them dinner?!?  Tickets are available in the band room (order form attached) all this week....don't miss out on all this fun!

This Tuesday will be the clinics with Dr Shiveley from OU.  Performances will be here at LCN in the cafeteria and parents are welcome to come listen in if you'd like. The bands will perform the pieces that they have been working on for Festival in March and get some feedback.  Here's the schedule for Tuesday:
3:00 - 4:00  Freshman Band
4:00 - 5:00  Concert Band   
  5:30 - 6:30  Symphony Band
  6:30 - 7:30  Wind Symphony

Kids, you can see that the schedule is tight so please be on time (.....early.....) and warmed up and ready to go.  You are not required to wear your concert stuff....regular school dress is fine. Oh, and wear whatever color socks you want :)
*Also, you are not required to stay for the entire will be dismissed after their performance times.

FESTIVAL: 3/13 & 3/14
It's sneaking right up on us, isn't it?  MSBOA Festival will be at Dakota High School again this year on Friday March 13th and Saturday the 14th.  Concert attire is required for this event (dresses, tux shirts and ties, black pants, black shoes, and you guessed socks)  Here's the schedule for Festival:
freshmen band 3:55
wind symphony 6:55

concert band 9:50 
symphony band 12:30
* freshmen band will be bused over on Friday.  All other bands are to report to Dakota High School one hour prior to their performance time.

With all of the extra days off these past few weeks, it's really important that the kids are getting in some practice time at home between now and Festival. Please make sure you guys are bringing your instruments home (and using them!) 

Don't forget that the paperwork and first payment for participation in 2015-16 Marching Band is due March 1st.  Checks can be written out to LCN Band Boosters and mailed directly to the p.o. box (LCHSN Band Boosters P.O. Box 366 New Baltimore, MI 48047)

One thing to take special note of.......not sure if you guys are aware of this but we are required to pull a license with the State for camp and are therefore required to adhere to their regulations and guidelines.  Because of this, we are now required to collect immunization records for every student going to camp as part of their medical records.   I know...ugh....and I'm sorry (but really its out of our hands!)  Anyhow, it is on the bottom of one of the forms in the packet and we've been getting some questions about it so I thought I better clarify.  If you could attach your students immunization records to that form, that'd be great.  Thanks!

FISH FRY: 3/20
Our 6th annual Fish Fry will be Friday March 20th.....getting some questions about that too so just giving everyone a head's up.....more exciting details to follow (will be looking for volunteers and donations so be sure to mark your calendars!)

Hey, if you're looking for something really cool to do on Saturday you should consider heading over to Milford High School to see the next Drumline competition.  They've been working really hard and look and sound great! Their performance time is are $8 adults and $6 students/seniors.....the address to Milford HS is 2380 Milford Rd Highland, MI 48357.

Thanks for visiting!
