New Date to Be Determined
Stay tuned for a January date for the Instrumental Winter Concert, which was postponed from 12/11/14 due to severe weather conditions! Don't think you'll be able to make it? KCAT TV15 is proudly filming and broadcasting the LGHS Music Department's Winter Concert Series. All family, friends, and alumni who cannot attend concerts can view them live via http://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/los-gatos-high-school-los-gatos-ca, after signing up for a free subscription on that site. In addition, the recordings will be posted there about a week after the performance.
General Info About the Music Program:

The Department also offers indoor winter guard and a winter percussion ensemble.
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.
