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 Fridays 4.30pm till 6.10pm

Conducted by Mr Courseaux, one of the school’s music teachers, the LFA orchestra is made up of about 50 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 perfect 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 Heisch, one of the school’s music teachers, and has some 30 musicians. Big Band performs 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.
