Transforming hearts and minds through shared musical experiences

Congratulations to the student musicians from the Downers Grove South High School Wind Ensemble, the Downers Grove North High School Wind Ensemble, and to our special guests in the Jugendblasorchester from the Musikschule of Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany for a fabulous concert last evening.  The bond formed through sharing musical experiences together is strong, and the students from each ensemble experienced the depth of this bond by sharing a a concert with each other.  The auditorium was packed, and the patrons clamored for an encore from the JBO at the end of the performance.  The evening concluded with over 200 student musicians performing a collaborative Stars and Stripes Forever! Bravo to each performer for their contributions to the success of this ongoing cultural and musical exchange.
