Ten DGN Student Musicians Earn All-State Honors




Ten student musicians from Downers Grove North High School have earned All-State Honors in the 2014-2015 Illinois Music Education Association All-State Band, Choir, and Orchestra.  

“We are really thrilled for these students and their families,” said Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Department Chair at North High.  “Many people helped these students achieve this success, beginning with their very first elementary school music teachers and extending to their private-lessons teachers today.  North High is very proud to have these incredible musicians representing District 99 at the All-State level.”

The All-State Band, Choir, and Orchestra will convene for a series of rehearsals in Peoria, IL, January 28-31, 2015.  Their concerts will be held at the Peoria Civic Center on the afternoon of January 31, 2015.
