@dgnfinearts @D99Orchestra @ChiYSO Students Collaborate With @chicagobulls #99Learns #WeAreDGN

DGN student musicians Tim Edwards, Liam Morgan and Amelia Smerz - all members of the prestigious Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra - recently participated in a special collaboration with the Chicago Bulls.  All three students contributed to the audio recording session, and Edwards participated in the video filmed at the Bull's practice facility.

Here is the 2015 Chicago Bulls Holiday Scrimmage video, but don't miss the "Behind the Scenes" video that explains what it took to put this video together and highlights the mutual respect that @chicagobulls and @ChiYSO have for one another.



Behind the scenes here.
