The LHS Choirs presented the Song Cycle "Edges" at the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth on Friday, April 21, 2017. Seniors Mariah Bongiovanni, Marilyn Moran, Jin Milhomme, and Ashton Pye performed the witty and honest song-cycle which deals with young adults who are teetering on the edge of their lives. They were assisted by Senior, Alina Turla and Sophomore Dylan Hansen on sound and logistics. UNLV Music Majors Leo Berenguel and Daniel Cihigoyenetche accompanied the quartet on piano and drums. NPHY is the most comprehensive service provider for the thousands of homeless youth in Southern Nevada, serving hundreds of youth through core programs and touching the lives of thousands more through outreach each year. NPHY’s programs stabilizes homeless teens’ lives, meeting their immediate needs and providing a safe, supportive environment and a path to self-sufficiency. Special thanks to all of the clubs and advisors, as well as the Liberty students for their generous donations.

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.

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.
