Chilling temperature, diverse culture, and great pizza. Music students headed to Chicago on March 23, 2018.

“[I went on this trip] because I wanted to have fun, learn about music, and perform in at symphony hall,” Jackson Vangiessen, eighth grade strings major, said.

The students that attended the trip were the Advanced String Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Boys Chorus, Girls Chorus and Chorale. The trip took place over spring break.

“The purpose of this trip was to expose our students to a performance of one of the best orchestras in the world, perform in Symphony Hall, work with nationally acclaimed artists and experience a city with a lot of culture,” Nancy Beebe, strings teacher, said.

While there, students visited places such as the Field Museum, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, House of Blues, and an architectural boat tour. Students also saw a performance of the Chicago symphony orchestra, had a music clinic, and participated

in an honors orchestra.

“My favorite part about the trip was the Magnificent Mile because of the unique shops and the displays of modern art,” William Wu, eighth grade band major, said.

Along with going sightseeing, students performed at a competition at Symphony Hall. Strings and band both placed first.

“I enjoyed everything,” Beebe said. “You want your students to have a variety of activities to enjoy.”
