Mr. Mario Joshua Prado
Hello. I am the proud conductor and director of the Legacy of Educational Excellence (LEE) HS Orchestra, LEE Mariachi Unido Ensemble, and The LEE Guitar Program.
This jounrey began back in 2010 and has continued to this day.
My vision is that the LEE Orchestra be "The Land of Opportunity". My philosophy is to expand the knowledge of the students in order to help them reach their musical potential in the most unique way possible. For some, this may simply mean performance; however, we have had unique experiences where students request to conduct, compose/arrange or even intern within this program. We have had some students identify with these talents, and this is why I encourage their multiple musical gifts. Here at LEE, you will graduate with an open mind towards all elements of music. My primary instruments are piano/viola. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music w/ Teacher's Certification from The University of The Incarnote Word back in 2000.
Here at LEE we have a parent booster organization call LOBO (LEE Orchestra Booster Organization). The parent officers have worked very hard and dedicated time to updating this website. If you please click on the link below, you will access the website which has more information.
