LFA Band & Orchestra

Lycée students - bring your instruments!

Students at the LFA are welcome to join the Orchestra or the Big Band.

The Orchestra rehearses Thursdays  4.30pm till 6.10pm

Conducted by Mr Courseaux, one of the school's music teachers, the LFA orchestra is made up of about 30 young musicians. Each semester they work on a new programme, covering everything from classical music to film music. Each year a 3-day workshop is organised for the musicians to really work on their pieces outside school, working together with the Big Band. IN addition to concerts and regular events, every three years the orchestra participates in a larger musical project in collaboration with the orchestras and choirs of the two other LFAs in Freiburg and Saarbrücken.  

The Big Band rehearses Mondays 4.30pm till 6pm

The LFA Big Band is led by Mme Warmbier, one of the school's music teachers, and had 22 musicians in 2015. For the past 4 years we have been performing twice a year in the Centre Culturel des Arcades in Buc (Winter & Summer Concerts).

The Big Band's repertoire is growing from year to year, encompassing pieces with a variety of styles, from jazz to rock, from south american to pop, not forgetting music from a number of films. New members are always welcome.
