Liberty High School was recently recognized in the Clark County School District newsletter for our AP success. Liberty was selected to be featured due to our increased enrollment in AP classes, as well as our higher-than-district-average number of students who have passing AP exams through the College Board. Many kudos to Ms. Pande and Mr. Depew who are highlighted in the article linked below.
Ian earned first chair in the Nevada All-state Orchestra. Students in the all-state orchestra had to first successfully complete their district honor orchestra, then audition against students from all around the state for the state orchestra. Once admitted to the all-state orchestra, they have to re-audition for their chair placement. After this grueling series of auditions, Ian has earned first chair! When you see Ian please congratulate him.

The casting company will be making a donation to the Choir Department for their participation.
For the second year in a row, the Orchestra has earned all superior ratings from all judges at the annual CCSD Advanced Festival. Andy Gabris did a terrific job with his solo violin work. Our festivals are our high stakes testing, only in front of an audience, with instant judgment, and the scores are sent to every secondary music teacher and administrator in the district. If you have an advanced or chamber orchestra student in your class, please congratulate them on an outstanding performance.
