The history of the Lake Braddock Band is one of continued excellence reflecting the dedication of hard-working students, parents, and faculty. Lake Braddock is the only school in the Commonwealth of Virginia to be designated a Virginia Honor Band for 37 consecutive years!
Congratulations to the Lake Braddock Band students for their selection by the John Philip Sousa Foundation as a recipient of the 2017 Sudler Flag of Honor. The Award is recognized as one of the Nation’s highest awards that can be presented to a concert band program. The purpose of the Sudler Flag of Honor is to identify, recognize and honor high school band programs internationally that have demonstrated particularly significant high standards of excellence in concert activities over a sustained period of several years. This is the second time Lake Braddock Band students have been selected to receive this award, earning it first in 1995.
February 18, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20566, USA
LB Band students will be showing children how to play instruments. Students do not need to bring their instruments. Instruments will be provided by the Kennedy Center. We will leave Lake Braddock around 11am, do the Petting Zoo before the two scheduled shows, and return to Lake Braddock. Students and parent chaperones will be able to attend the concerts for free, space permitting. Students, this is a great way to earn service hours, see a great show for free, and encourage young musicians!
Concerts are at 2 pm and 4 pm preceded by Petting Zoos at 1 pm and 3 pm.
