Instrumental Music Update

Hello everyone!

Congratulations to Sam Romo who purchased a vintage Buffet R13 Clarinet this weekend! It's always exciting when one of our students saves their own money to buy a professional instrument. Sam is a student of Colleen Corning, RB's clarinet teacher, who helped him find the right instrument.

Also, Congratulations to Alex Buffo who had the opportunity to play Taps at Soldier's Field recently for the Illinois Warrior Summit.  Alex played on stage beside country singer Rockie Lynne.  Alex is part of the group "Buglers Across America" who provide buglers for different events, mostly funerals of veterans, and every once in a while something different and fun like this.

This Saturday the Marching Band will be participating in the Von Steuben Day festival and parade. Come show your support for the band and love for all things German at our most memorable parade in the fall!

IMEA auditions are fast approaching. If you need help of any sort please don't hesitate to see Mr. McOlgan or Mr. Baum.

Mr. Baum and Mr. McOlgan
