Deerfield High School Announces an All-State Musician
Deerfield High School junior Zachry Molina was recently named an All-State musician by the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA). Zachry had already been selected to the all-district festival based on his audition with dozens of other high school musicians from northeastern Illinois. Because of his high score at the district level, he will now join students from the entire state at the ILMEA convention in Peoria. He will attend two days of rehearsals and clinics led by nationally-known music educators and perform in a festival concert at the Peoria Civic Center. With this honor, Zachry is recognized as being among the finest high school musicians in all of Illinois.
