• ILMEA District IX Junior Auditions & Honor Band Festival

    The Illinois Music Education Association (ILMEA) offers the wonderful opportunity to audition for an honor band festival where talented middle school students come together for one day to rehearse and play a concert. ILMEA District IX is made up of many school districts from our surrounding area. Out of all the students auditioning, approximately 130 will participate in the honor band. Auditioning for ILMEA takes dedication and hard work. If you are interested in auditioning for ILMEA, please see Mrs. Hensel or Mr. Lipinski for the audition music and more information. Audition packets can be found in the band room.
