Cost is $25, and covers participation for one child and one adult as well as the art materials cost. Any additional adults will need to purchase a regular Museum admission. Reservations are required; call (949) 494-8971 ext. 207 or visit http://www.LagunaArtMuseum.org.

The pair auditioned in the fall and was accepted after a review by the Selection Board Committee. To select finalists for this honor, the expert board of music professionals reviewed every completed application received.

Both students said they are looking forward to the opportunity to work with finalists from across the nation. In addition to their performance at the famous venue, the students will have the opportunity to learn from master conductors.

Schools connect with other communities

Teaming together to connect with communities near and far, students from Laguna's schools participated in a broad array of community service opportunities throughout the holiday season, according to school district officials.

A friendly grade-level competition at Laguna Beach High School resulted in the collection of 1,500 pounds of food for the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa. For every pound of food donated, students received a raffle ticket for prizes donated by local businesses. The senior class won the competition by donating more than 700 pounds of food.
