In memoriam...Dr. Randi Carp
We regret to inform our choir family and alumni that Dr. Randi Carp passed away earlier today.
Randi was Los Al's beloved choir teacher for 16 years, from 1992 to 2008, and had been involved in choral music in public schools since 1965.
She taught six choirs at Los Alamitos and also taught locally at Cal State Fullerton and USC. She was honored with several teaching awards, including being named Teacher of the Year at Los Al in 2005.
Among her many teaching accomplishments, she took Xpressions to London and won the Heritage Festival for Concert Choirs in 2004. In 2005, she directed SoundFX as they became backup singers for former Styx lead singer Dennis DeYoung when he performed in Cerritos.
Randi also took SoundFX, Soundtrax and Xpressions to China to perform in Shanghai, Beijing and the Great Wall of China in 2008 as part of a musical salute to the Olympics.
In 2008, she relocated to the east coast in 2008 and remained active in choral music as a teacher and a much sought after adjudicator and clinician.

Thanks for Swinging for the Stars!
The 2nd Annual Swing for the Stars Golf Tournament was held Monday November 9th, 2015 at El Dorado Golf Course. We would like to thank all the golfers, volunteers, sponsors, and golf course staff that made the tournament another fun and successful event.
Congratulations to the Luyben foursome as the winning group with a score of 14 under par! Congratulations also to our contest winners Hipp Nguyen for “Closest to the Pin” on Hole #3 and Matt Luyben for “Longest Drive” on Hole #7. Unfortunately, nobody was able to win the $10,000 cash prize for getting a “Hole in One” on Hole #12.
After golf, several spouses joined us for a delicious buffet dinner. The excitement at dinner was buzzing with anticipation of winning one of the many raffle prizes that were drawn. There were so many raffle gifts, almost everyone went home with a prize!
Thanks again to everyone who participated to support our choir program.
