The Lincoln Middle School (LMS) Marching Band, directed by Tyra Ingram Cable and led by drum major Emily Tran, made its eighth appearance in San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade on Saturday, Feb. 15. Tens of thousands of people lined the streets to watch the parade and celebrate the Year of the Dragon. The parade, whose tradition stretches back to the 1860s, is one of this country’s few remaining night illuminated parades.
Three eighth grade musicians represented Lincoln Middle School (LMS) recently at the California Music Educators’ Bay Area Section Winter Conference and Honor Band Concert. The students were specially selected by the California Music Education Association (CMEA) committee.
