The D99 Orchestra's 2014 European Tour has officially begun, and we invite you to follow the orchestra as they perform in Croatia, Austria, and Germany. Student and staff bloggers will be reporting and sharing pictures along the way.
Five District 99 Fine Arts students (including two recent graduates) were featured this evening in an exceptional concert at Millennium Park in Chicago. Ben Casey, Tim Edwards, Andrew Molina, Liam Morgan, and Amelia Smerz are all members of the prestigious Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, and performed tonight with Blue Man Group in a concert that featured works for the orchestra's upcoming tour to China.
Congratulations to these dedicated student musicians as they share their talents with one of the nation's premiere youth orchestras.
