DHS MUSIC STUDENTS HONORED
Eleven Deerfield High School students were recently named to the Illinois Music Educators Association District VII Music Festivals. These students auditioned with hundreds of other high school musicians from Northeastern Illinois and were chosen based on their tone, technique and reading skills. They will perform in the district festivals in November where they will work with college conductors from around the country. These DHS students will join their peers from over 50 other high schools in a day of intensive rehearsals culminating in a festival performance. Competition for these groups is very keen, and it is a great honor to be selected. Congratulations to the following musicians:
Orchestra: Josh Kim, cello. Chorus: Emma Meyerhoff, alto. Band: Lindsey Aaronson, horn; Joey Bloom, trombone; Henry Cao, clarinet; Eric Guberman,
baritone saxophone; Jacob Taitel, tuba. Jazz Combo: Nathan Weiskirch, tenor saxophone. Jazz Band: Eric Guberman, baritone saxophone; Zachry Molina, piano; Chet Zenor, guitar.
