Symphonic Orchestra Make a Note: February 17 – 21

The kids played very well at the University of Illinois Orchestra Clinic. It was so awesome hearing the U of I Symphony Orchestra and being able to perform in the Krannert Center Great Hall.  Our clinician, Dr. Steve Fairbanks of U of I, was very complimentary of the kids.  

Please have your kids bring in their Symphonic garment bags.  

Symphonic Orchestra will not be performing at the elementary schools this Thursday.  They are a little behind with all of the snow days.
