Thirteen student-musicians from Downers Grove North High School have earned All-State honors through the Illinois Music Education Association. Students were selected to the All-State Band, All-State Choir, All-State Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and All-State Orchestra. All-State musicians will travel to Peoria, Ill., from January 23-26, 2019 to participate in the Illinois Music Education Conference.

“We are truly thrilled for these students and their families,” said Brayer Teague, Fine Arts Department Chair at North High. “Many people helped these students achieve this success, beginning with their very first elementary school music teachers and extending to their private-lessons teachers today. North High is very proud to have these incredible musicians representing District 99 at the All-State level, and we are excited they will now perform alongside the very best musicians in the State of Illinois.”
