Students will have the opportunity to perform in one of the finest acoustic venues in the Midwest. And, each group will have a guest conductor for one song on the program, Dr. Elizabeth Peterson from the University of Illinois.
"We are incredibly grateful to the District 230 Foundation for providing the opportunity for this event," said Stagg Band Director Robert Mecozzi. "We are very excited to be able to share the incredible work ethic, talent, dedication, and musicianship of the students in these programs. Beyond just the opportunity to play in an incredibly concert hall, we are excited that the students from each school will listen to each other perform, and share in the common bond of music performance."
