Spring Chicago Trip Fun and Successful for Music Students

On April 25, 50 MLWGS music students traveled to Chicago to perform and compete in the Heritage Music Festival. There, members of the Jazz Band I, Jazz Band II, Jazz Improv, Orchestra, and Chorus classes received silver ensemble ratings, 2nd place ensemble rankings, and 1st place for the highest instrumental ensemble combined scores.  

Gavriel Binshtok('14), Adrian Chiodo('13), and Christopher Soldan('15) are also to be congratulated for receiving individual outstanding soloist awards.

The students spent four whirlwind days touring downtown Chicago by boat, ascending the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears tower), visiting the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum, seeing the Braodway Musical, "Jersey Boys", hearing Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis and enjoying the city's celebrated cuisine.
