Bands Ready For The Challenge Of Chamber Concert

To prepare for their upcoming concert, students from the Advanced Symphonic and Honor Bands had the opportunity to work with and be coached by professionals from the Chicagoland area.

A professional brass quintet came to class to perform an hour of music for the students on their “Chamber Kick-Off Day.”

Now those students are ready to perform in tomorrow’s Band Chamber Concert, slated for a 6:30 p.m. start in the West Auditorium. The performance can also be viewed via Vimeo.

Chamber music is among the most challenging and demanding disciplines in music and for this entirely student-led concert, students chose their music and rehearsed everything without the aid of the band directors.
