Sep 27 by Paul Katula ... Lakes Community HS celebrates its 10th anniversary with a new motto: Live, Learn, Lead. That's also the theme of the marching band's show. And while the school has a new motto, the band provides something much more entertaining: the theme from the "Ode to Joy" from the Fourth Movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony played on a gorgeous, liquid, lone trumpet. It builds from there, and it also includes a few phrases from the Fourth Movement of Symphony No. 1 in C Major by Johannes Brahms. Every time we hear something brand new or a new way of performing something old, we learn something about ourselves. Congratulations, Lakes Community High School, on a gripping performance. I especially liked the running double-length strides near the beginning. Very well executed.
