Thirteen student musicians from South High School in Downers Grove have been selected through competitive audition to participate in the 2017-2018 Illinois Music Education Association All-State Bands, Orchestras, Choirs, Jazz Bands or Vocal Jazz Ensembles. Auditions took place on October 10, 2017 at Carl Sandburg High School. Chorus students have been placed into Honors or All-State Ensembles based on their district auditions and call-backs. Instrumental students will audition again in January while in Peoria for placement in either Honors or All-State Ensembles.
“Earning a spot as an All-State musician is the pinnacle of performance success for a high school performer in Illinois” Fine Arts Department Chairman, Glenn Williams said. “The long-term performance success of these student musicians can be attributed to families, private teachers, and sender school music teachers. South High School is proud of these students for their diligence and commitment to musical excellence and is pleased to have them represent our school, our district and our community as musical ambassadors at the IMEC this coming January in Peoria.”
The All-State Band, Choir, and Orchestra will convene for a series of rehearsals in Peoria, IL, January 24-27, 2018. Their concerts will be held at the Peoria Civic Center on the afternoon of January 27, 2018.
