DGN Congratulates Thirty-Nine All-District Musicians!


Thirty-nine student musicians from Downers Grove North High School were selected, by competitive audition, to the 2011 Illinois Music Educators Association District Band, Choir, Orchestra and Jazz Band.  Auditions were held on Tuesday, October 11, at Carl Sandburg High School.  The top placing scores were selected for participation in the District Music Festivals, to be held during the month of November.

“Selection to the IMEA All-District ensembles is a big honor for a high school musician,” said Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Department Chairperson.  “Our faculty is excited for these students who will now have the opportunity to collaborate with the most outstanding musicians in our region.  We are looking forward to hearing great performances at the District Music Festival next month.”
