CCSD93's Band and Orchestra programs have had some terrific concerts recently and will host a number of events and opportunities in the next few weeks!
CCSD93's Orchestra Plays Glenbard North
On April 23, 4th through 8th grade Orchestra students from Stratford and its feeder elementary schools played in Glenbard North's Auditorium, while Orchestra students from Jay Stream and its feeders played there on April 24. It was a terrific opportunity for all of the program's students to show off the skills they've been working so hard on this year from the bright lights of a more professional stage. Here are some elementary students showing off what they've learned!
5th Grade Band Plays at Stratford
On Tuesday of this week, the 5th Grade Beginning Band held their spring concert at Stratford Middle School! This was their second and final concert of the year and included over 160 students. The group played the theme from Star Wars. Congratulations to all the performers!
Middle School Bands Play for 4th Graders
On Thursday of this week, Jay Stream Band members performed for 4th grade students from from Carol Stream, Heritage Lakes, and Western Trails. On Wednesday, Stratford Band members performed for Cloverdale, Elsie Johnson, and Roy DeShane 4th grade students.
It helped give the younger students an idea of what being in Band and having a dedication to their craft could lead to!
