Lindbergh High School students proved they have winning ways when it comes to music as a number of them were selected for All-Suburban and All-State Concert Band, Jazz Band and Orchestra honors. Members of the groups were selected by audition. Those who received All-State honors also were named to All-Suburban groups.

Of 25 competing high schools, Lindbergh tied for first place with Ladue High School for the most students selected for the All-Suburban Band. The students are directed by Bob Spiegelman, Jeff DiLallo and Dan Arana.
