CONCERT REFLECTION

A huge thank you to all involved with the concert on Thursday evening, including all of our attendees, such as parents, faculty, administration, staff, board members, and community members.  

A special thanks to all of the students involved in the music-making last Thursday.  We have received many compliments about their performance, and we are excited to see how far they all will progress this year.  I am extremely proud of concert band's hard work and detail to attention as they prepared for this concert, and for the confidence in insisting that they play as their own ensemble.  Symphonic band is beginning to do some detail work in artistry and musicianship, and had many comments from audience members speaking about their beauty in expression.  To all of the parents - my thanks to you for keeping your student involved in school music.

Our next major concert is Sunday, February 26, at 3pm (this date has changed from the original calendar published in August).  We will have performances by the Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and our special guests will be the District 86 Joliet All-City Band.  

GIVE A NOTE  CONTEST

Results will be announced Monday! Cross your fingers!
