LITTLE CONDUCTOR DIRECTS LPO – Trafton
Academy fourth grade student Laikyn Lauderdale, daughter of Sonya and Bubba
Lauderdale of Hammond, was chosen to be the guest conductor at the Dec.
2 Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra holiday concert at the Columbia Theatre
for the Performing Arts. LPO conductor Albert-George Schram, right, gave
Laikyn some pointers before she took the stage to wield the baton for the
LPO's performance of "Sleigh Ride." Laikyn was selected to be conductor-for-a-night
through a drawing from among the area school children who created ornaments
for the holiday tree in the Columbia Theatre lobby.
