LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The gymnasium at Lafayette High School in Lexington was packed floor-to-ceiling Wednesday night. The huge crowd wasn’t there to see a sporting event but rather, to see and hear the next generation of gifted musicians.
Bands from elementary to high school filled the gym floor for the annual Lafayette Area Band Concert.
Bands from Picadome Elementary, Stonewall Elementary, Clays Mill Elementary, SCAPA/Bluegrass Middle School, William Wells Brown Elementary, Wellington Elementary, Jessie Clark Middle School and Lafayette High School were represented.
Some of the bands were combined, others played individually, but the concert ended with the entire ensemble joining forces to perform ‘Ode to Joy.’
