On Saturday, November 4th, 2017, the Illinois Music Education Association Elementary and Junior High Division held its annual District I Music Festival at Lincoln-Way Central High School in New Lenox, IL.  The festival involved over 500 students selected from more than 60 schools throughout the southwestern metropolitan Chicago area, featuring a 150 member festival band, a 100 piece festival orchestra, and a festival chorus numbering over 150 voices.

Representing Beecher Junior High, was 8th grader Phoebe Ouellette (french horn) and 6th grader Katelyn Bol (soprano).  We are so proud of these students for not only completing a rigorous audition to gain acceptance into the organization, but also practicing and performing with this outstanding group of musicians.  We are so proud of you for all of your hard work!  Way to go!
