Greetings LYS Families,
If you have a student in the
, then you likely already know that our ensemble directors, Sean Kemp and Katarina Schmidt, will be stepping away from their positions at the end of the season. Sean and Katie have been with LYS for a combined 7 years and while
they will be missed
, we know they will continue to be great ambassadors for LYS in the local music community and
wish them well in their future endeavors
We have identified
several strong candidates
for each director position and are currently in the process of conducting interviews. The top candidates will be invited to
participate in observation rehearsals
with the ensembles
Feel free to reach out to Kristen if you are interested in participating in those observations and sharing your feedback. Our goal is to get a complete assessment across students, parents, the current ensemble directors, and board members.
We appreciate everyone's patience and support as we work through this process. Please feel free to contact me or Kristen if you have any questions or concerns.
We look forward to introducing our new directors at the Season Finale concert in May!
