My name is Laura Brinegar and I run the performing arts program at MLCS. I began my college career at 15 on a music scholarship at Sierra Nevada College and later at the University of Nevada and was a member of the Reno Opera Company. I left college to go on the road as a professional musician and later returned the University of the Pacific to complete my degree majoring in education with a minor in music.
Our program at MLCS has an emphasis on performance based education. I believe music is meant to be performed and enjoyed and children learn best when working together to perfect an artistic program to be shared. Our school presents two musicals during the school year which are student driven. From acting, choreography, singing, lighting, sound, and sets our students are trained to be active participants in each production.
