D. 202 HS musicians to participate in ILMEA district festival

Forty-two District 202 high school students will take part in the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) District Festivals for jazz, choir, band and orchestra.

Following a competitive audition process, the students were selected to perform in the District IX Senior Band/Chorus/Orchestra Festival on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Elgin High School in Elgin, Illinois.

The students received music in advance to practice on their own. At the District IX Festival they will rehearse all day with top college instructors before performing with other students from across the area as part of the District IX Choir, Band or Orchestra.

Later this fall the students will learn if they have qualified to perform at the ILMEA All-State Conference held in Peoria in January 2018.
