Each year, the Villa Grove Music Department students participate in auditions for the District 5 Honors Ensembles. The auditions are held in October and the students with the top scores across the district are then chosen for the Honors choirs, bands, jazz ensembles, and orchestras. The students meet in Charleston at EIU in November for a full day of rehearsals with a guest conductor before performing concerts in the evening. This year, Villa Grove has one junior high student and three high school students chosen to be in the ensembles. The students and their ensembles were as follows:
Ryan Lillard- Junior Concert Choir
Molly Little, Amelia Williams and Caleb Wiessing – Senior Concert Choir
The performances will be held on November 20, 2021 in Charleston.
We have a long tradition of musical greatness in Villa Grove, and these students are continuing that tradition! Congratulations to our talented musicians!
