How we Communicate with LYSO Members

Email

The best way to contact the business manager, the manager or either one of the conductors is through email.

Email Addresses are: 

Manager:  Kathi Millard – manager@lyso.org
Italiano Orchestra Conductor:  Randy Mastin – randy_mastin@yahoo.com
Philharmonic Orchestra Conductor:  Nick Hansberry - nhansber@lacrossesd.org

Announcements and Handouts

Announcements are frequently made at rehearsals, and things may be handed out at rehearsals. It is the member’s responsibility to make sure that parents/guardians are informed of these after each rehearsal.

Last Minute Information

When information changes at the last minute, LYSO will be in touch, usually through email. Also, the LYSO website (www.lyso.org) will be updated often with any breaking news

Bad Weather Cancellations or Delays

All weather-related postponement and cancellation information will be posted prominently at the LYSO website. A message will also be on the LYSO telephone at (608) 788-0159.

If you live outside of the La Crosse area, your weather may be far different than in La Crosse. If we do not cancel a rehearsal, but you feel that you can’t get your child there safely, please call (608) 788-0159 to let us know you won’t be coming. This is a cell phone so it will be at all rehearsals.

LYSO Office

The LYSO offices are located in the manager’s home. The LYSO telephone number is (608) 788-0159 and calls the manager, Kathi Millard.  This is a cell phone and will be at all rehearsals, concerts and activities. The manager does not work any set hours and have other responsibilities beyond LYSO, so please leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
