Christmas 2011 Benefit Concerts - A Huge Success!

LAAPA Press Release - 01/03/2012


Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts’ Covington and Mandeville Schools of Music held its 5 Christmas concerts on Saturday, December 10 at 10AM, 11:45AM, 1:30PM, 3:15PM, and 5PM at the Fuhrmann Auditorium, 317 N. Jefferson Ave. Covington, LA 70433.


The River Ridge School of Music & Dance held its 4 concerts on Sunday, December 18 at 12:00 PM, 2:00 PM, 4:00 PM, and 6PM at the Solomon Theatre on the campus of St. Martin's Episcopal School.


Concerts featured students in piano, vocal, guitar, wind, brass, percussion, strings, the LAAPA Jazz Ensemble, Kehoe France Northshore Concert Band, and the LAAPA CHORUS.


Each year our Christmas Concerts support a South Texas Mission in Batesville, TX run by the Teresian Sisters.  In this way we can all celebrate the love and joy of the Christmas Season.  Our students delight in sharing their talent to help these families who have so little.  Our LAAPA Family and the community in the St. Tammany and Greater New Orleans area has been so very generous in the past, and this year was certainly no exception - in fact this year we received a record number of donated toys and basic need items which filled our trucks to the top! Cash donations were also extremely generous and added up to over $1000 this year!


Congratulations to all performers and families once again. Photos of each concert are below:
