2020 LMBA Season Update
The LMBA Executive Board has been carefully monitoring the pandemic
over the past few months, and in particular how it is affecting
decisions around athletics, school districts and ultimately the
marching activity within our communities.
The Lakeshore Marching Band Association exists to provide a positive
and educational experience for marching band students and staff
members. While it is not our right to dictate what programs ARE and
ARENíT allowed to do on your campus, the Executive Board feels
strongly that we have a responsibility to provide guidance and
leadership when it comes to the activity.
After waiting several months to allow for the situation in
Pennsylvania to improve, we have determined that at this time schools
cannot safely host any of our regularly scheduled events this season.
Please understand that while this may seem like a slow decision, this
was in reality a patient and hopeful mentality for the students,
families and programs of our region.
It is also important to note that the LMBA will be working on
potential alternative performance opportunities. This is NOT to cancel
all marching band activities at every school. We are hoping that many
marching bands can continue to function safely within the guidelines
of their district school system. Furthermore, we hope this can
alleviate the stress of preparing an LMBA Competition, thus allowing
directors to focus on musical skills and team building that may have
been missed in the final 9 weeks of the spring 2020 semester.
We will find strength in our communities. The LMBA Executive Board is
thankful for the continued support and positivity shown by our
directors, staff members, students and fans. During a time when it is
quick to criticize, blame and react negatively, we are grateful for
the love and compassion that our communities continue to show towards
