NBJH students who auditioned for ILMEA

Congratulations to all the NBJH musicians who auditioned for the ILMEA District 7 Honor Band: Christina Peters, Anna Huelke, Caroline Gross, Natalie Hong, Abby Reese, Nate Muhl. These ambitious students put in many extra hours to prepare the audition material, and deserve commendation for being among the top musicians in northern Illinois!


Over 500 students from 61 schools strive to be selected for this prestigious concert band. The ILMEA District 7 Junior Festival features a 150-piece ensemble of the finest junior high musicians in the Northeastern Illinois area.  


Preparing to audition for this festival is a great learning experience, and acceptance is a true achievement. This year Caroline Gross (7th grade, clarinet) was selected through audition to perform in the Honor Band. Congratulations, Caroline!


The ILMEA District 7 Honor Band rehearses and performs together ONCE, all on the same day! On Saturday, November 3, selected students will meet at Wauconda High School to work with a special guest conductor. The concert is held at 2 p.m.
