The Parent Prom will take place Saturday, Feb. 8 at Royale Orleans, 2801 Telegraph Road, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person and include appetizers and open bar. The LHS Orchestra will play classy 1980s dance tunes with a DJ to follow.

Over the next two years, the LHS Orchestra will collaborate with Die Telemänner to honor the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities program. The orchestras will visit each other and play together this year and in 2021.
