On April 11, District 117 hosted the Second Annual Orchestra Festival, featuring 2nd-12th grade orchestra students from both District 34 and District 117. Audience members, parents, and students were able to see how students progress on their instruments, from beginners in elementary school to advanced musicians in high school. This festival is a great way to showcase the orchestra programs in the community. We are eager to see how the music programs in District 34 and 117 will grow over the next several years.
