Gaudete Brass In #Bernstein100 Residency with DGN Bands

The DGN Bands were pleased to welcome the Gaudete Brass to North High School today for the first of several campus residency visits. The Chicago-based professional brass quintet is collaborating with the DGN Wind Ensemble to present Leonard Bernstein's Suite from MASS on the upcoming October 30 concert, as well as a special performance at Cadogan Hall in London, England. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of Bernstein's birth, and the DGN/Gaudete Collaboration is being recognized by the Bernstein Office as an official #Bernstein100 international performance. 

The members of the quintet worked with all three concert band classes today, both as performers and as clinicians. 

The DGN Fine Arts Department extends thanks to the DGN Friends of Fine Arts, the District 99 Education Foundation, and the Illinois Arts Council, for their generous support of this residency project.
