Fine Arts Band, Chorus, Drama, and Visual Arts Here at LHS, we pride ourselves on the quality and the quantity of our fine arts offerings. From instrumental to vocal music, from stage work to painting, there is a passion inside all of humanity that must be nurtured. If you choose to delve into one of these arts, you will not be disappointed. CHORUS The Lowndes High Chorus is a part of the diversified offerings available to students of the Fine Arts department.
