Dr. Steve Peterson to campus this afternoon. Dr, Peterson is the recently appointed Director of Bands at the University of Illinois.
Dr. Peterson worked with the DGN Wind Ensemble on Percy Grainger's "Theme from Green Bushes," a work that the District 99 Honors Band will perform on tour this coming summer. Dr. Peterson's workshop was both captivating and inspiring for our North High musicians, and lent insight into the opportunities that await students who may ultimately attend the University of Illinois.
Dr. Peterson will be in Elmhurst, IL this weekend serving as the Illinois Music Education Association District 1 Honor Band Guest Conductor this weekend.
