General Concert Information


For most concert attire is Black Pants, Black Dress Shirt with Sleeves, Black Socks, and Black Dress Shoes.  This is also known as Concert Black. 

When other attire is required, like the 9th graders for the Homecoming performance, it is noted on the schedule.


Admission Fees for Concerts:

PLSAS charges admission to high school events.  This includes concerts.  Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. We have tried to mark all the events where admission will be taken.


Concert Venue:

Almost all of the Concerts will take place in the PLHS Auditorium. We ask that all individuals enter the auditorium on the 2nd level and exit the first level.  Individuals who are unable to do stairs should enter the auditorium on the first level by the Laker Cafe.

Homecoming 2019 - Freshmen First Performance with Marching Band

At Homecoming the Freshmen Bands will join the Varsity Marching Band in performance.  Students are working on 8 pieces and drill to perform a full pre-game and halftime show.  In total, 260 students will fill the field to entertain!   Please see the information below for attire and an important joint rehearsal.   This rehearsal is extremely important as it is our only time with all 260 students together.  Students will be excused from their 0 hour, 1st, and 2nd hour classes to attend.  As it is early in the morning we recommend students dress in layers to accommodate the weather.

Friday Night Details (October 4th)

Once the students arrive at school Friday night, they will be with the band for pregame, the first half, and halftime.  Following the performance at halftime, students will return their instruments to the band room and are free to return to the game for free or may leave.  The band area will be locked after instruments are put away.  Students should not plan to come back into school to get their belongings after the conclusion of the game.

Pep Band

The Pep Band is a volunteer organization that plays for ten to twelve varsity sports events throughout the year.  Typically, the pep band plays for boys & girls soccer, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball games.  The schedule is still being hammered out for the year ahead, but we hope to have fall dates ASAP.  Participation in the pep band is how 9th graders can earn their varsity PL letter.  Once the schedule is determined, students would need to attend 2/3rds of the events to qualify for the letter.  Students may attend any number of events that suits their schedule just for the fun of it! In addition to sports events, the pep band is called upon from time to time to play for in-school pep rallies, state team send offs or even state tournament sport events.  Again, students should stay tuned to announcements in class for these events as sometimes they have a very short notification.

Rehearsals for Pep Band will be 8:15 a.m. - 8:50 a.m. on Wednesdays
