It has been an annual tradition to end the LHS Marching Band season with a fundraiser serving a chicken dinner, having a silent auction and performing an indoor concert (this is the 44th annual Indoor Concert!). With COVID-19, this year the directors along with the Band Parents Association have worked hard to figure out a way to continue this tradition in a new and different way.

In an effort to allow for increased spreading out of performers and audience members, we are excited to announce that we will have our Indoor Show performance at the Sioux Falls Arena!

Frequently Asked Questions


How does ticketing work?

  • Tickets are $15/each. Ages 5 and under are free

  • Payment options are available on the ticket form

  • Each paid ticket will receive the free Slim Chicken's meal voucher when they enter the concert

  • All tickets will be picked up in the Arena lobby the day of the event

  • Please note: In past years, the concert ticket was separate from the chicken dinner. This year, BOTH are included in the cost.


Is this a fundraiser?

Yes! This is an opportunity for the band students to earn money towards their ISA accounts along with a fundraiser for operational funds for the Band Parents Association to support the LHS Band. Feel free to share the ticket link so friends and family can come too! Once expenses have been paid the following will apply:

  • $2/ticket will be earned towards the band student’s ISA account (for tickets sold before Friday, 10/30/20, 11:59pm)

  • Remaining proceeds will apply to fundraiser for the Band Parents Association which directly serves the Band


Do performing band students need a ticket?

No. Band students do not need a ticket to rehearse and perform in the Arena.


Are there multiple performances, or just one?

Just one performance this year at 3:00pm on Saturday, Oct. 31


Will students be in uniform?



Will there be an auction?

Yes. A live Silent Auction will be open from 1:00-2:30pm. All proceeds from the auction will go towards fundraising for the Band Parents Association which directly serves the Band. Click here to see auction items.


Will you be serving a meal or any food?

No food will be served at the Arena before, during, or after this event.  We are excited to announce we have partnered with Slim Chickens this year. Each ticket turned in at the concert will receive a free Slim Chicken's meal coupon to use at your convenience!


Will you need volunteers?

Yes! We will need help at the ticket tables, door ushers, with the auction, etc. Be watching for a volunteer sign up soon.


What will the setup look like?

Horn line members will be spread out in the seating on one side of the Arena.  Percussionists and Color guard members will be spread out on the floor level.  The audience will be on the opposite side of the Arena seating area.


Will seniors and their family members get to skip to “On the Mall” this year?

Yes! This tradition is vital to the success of the band and must continue!  Seriously though, we plan to have a very large circular path that takes skippers from the main floor of the arena, around through the concessions area, and back to the main floor in an attempt to spread people out.  Skippers should wear masks and spread out as much as possible.


Will seniors wear white plumes/berets?

Yes. Also, families with seniors will get to sit closest to the front.


I notice that Oct. 31, 2020 is a Full Moon (Blue Moon), it’s Halloween, and the show is entitled “Noc-Turn.” Was this planned or is this just a fascinating coincidence?

This was all definitely planned.  There’s no possible way that it could be a coincidence.


Will there be a livestream option for those who can’t attend?

We don’t know yet but we are looking into it. Stay tuned.
