James Hart Sends Nine Talented Musicians to Music Festival

Congratulations to the 9 students who will participate in the Illinois Music Educators Association District 1 Festival at Lincoln Way Central on Nov. 4th. Students are invited to participate through an audition process. The students competed against hundreds for the honors, performing selected solo works for the judges to earn their places. Only a small percentage of the very top musicians from about 60 schools were selected.

Congratulations to these talented and hard-working musicians!
