Welcome to Los Gatos High School Music!

The Department also offers indoor winter guard and a winter percussion ensemble.
In 2014-2015 the Music Department anticipates again breaking enrollment records, with approximately 300 students involved in one or more of these outstanding programs. LGHS Music ensembles have recently been recognized for excellence in performance with several CMEA Unanimous Superior ratings, Gold ratings and Overall Program sweepstakes in the Heritage Music Festival, and several top rankings in its marching programs.
Every four years, the Music Department embarks on an international summer performance tour. Most recently, in June 2014, students in Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, and Choir toured England, where they collaborated with world-renowned American composer Frank Ticheli, performed in major historic venues in London, York, and Harrogate, and participated in the Harrogate International Music Festival.
