Students playing instruments

On Saturday, Feb. 23, 25 Middle School South sixth-eighth grade Orchestra students participated in the NIMCon Solo and Ensemble Contest. They performed solos and in small groups for a judge at Palombi Middle School in Lake Villa. Everyone earned highest division I ratings, and of those 25 students, 10 students earned perfect scores! Most importantly, the students expressed themselves through music and showed lots of growth through the process of learning their pieces. The students had an absolutely wonderful experience and lots of fun in the process!
