D. 202 HS musicians to participate in ILMEA district festival

Forty District 202 high school student musicians will take part in the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) District Festivals for jazz, choir, band and orchestra on Saturday, November 2, 2019.

The students were selected based on a competitive audition to perform in the District IX Senior Band/Chorus/Orchestra Festival at East Aurora High School in Aurora, 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.

The students will learn later this fall if they have qualified to perform at the ILMEA All-State Conference held in Peoria in January 2020.
