ILMEA Pre-Audition Results (DGN 2016)

Thank you to all DGN Band students that participated in the 2016 ILMEA Pre-Auditions.  We greatly appreciate the work that each musician put into preparing the literature.  Please click here for a list of the students with the top 20 pre-audition scores.

Students who earned placement in the top 20 are now expected to follow through with the ILMEA District 1 Auditions on Tuesday, October 11th.  If anyone on the list has a conflict, it is important to let Mr. Teague or Mr. Miller know immediately so they can invite the first-alternate.

Thank you, again, for your time and dedication to the process.

Calling all Trombonists! #JonBall76Trombones

Join our salute to the Music Education career of Mr. Jonathan Ball in his final DGN Band Invitational Concert.  We will close the concert with a performance of "76 Trombones" as a nod to Mr. Ball's years of service and dedication to our community and the schools of Downers Grove.

So pull your trombone out of the closet, practice a few lip-slurs, and come join us on November 1.

Please invite anyone you know who can hold (we mean play) a trombone!

All guest-trombonists will rehearse with the DGN Wind Ensemble / current DGN & Herrick Band trombones at 5:45 PM on the night of the concert.

Concert attire: Your call! As long as you're wearing clothes, you're invited!

Click here for our FacebookEvent page, and check back here on the DGN Bands Blog in October for sheet music so YOU (or a trombonist you know) can participate!
