There are many formal - and informal - rituals and gestures of appreciation associated with the culmination of High School. Here's a brief look at one small tradition at North High that is a part of the DGN Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Orchestra tradition. VIDEO HERE.

Congratulations to the members of the DGN Chamber Choir for a superb performance at the 2018 Chamber Choir Farewell Concert. A special thank-you to the Class of 2018 for their musical and personal leadership!
"Make something better!" This is the familiar and friendly nudge that Mr. Mark Botti is famously known for sharing with his students. Mr. Botti understands that "perfection" in music in a mythical and unattainable benchmark, and that as artists we should be constantly striving to improve.
Beginning his tenure at DGN in 2001, Mr. Botti has mentored 150+ DGN percussion students, and led the DGN Percussion ensemble in 17 consecutive Mosaic Concerts.
For his dedicated and passionate percussion teaching at Downers Grove North High School, we extend our most sincere gratitude to Mr. Mark Botti for making us all ... BETTER. You will be missed, and we wish you peace and happiness as you embark on the next chapter of your journey.
