Summer and Fall 2017 Schedule 

Directors Comments:

May 9th, 2017

This year, the 2017 graduation ceremony will be held on Sunday, May 21st at 5:00 pm. Students are asked to be here at 3:45 pm so we can be warmed up, tuned and ready to perform the prelude music. The ceremony should last about 40 minutes. Students are expected to dress appropriately, no shorts! This is a ceremony honoring your fellow classmates and we want to look professional. Also, I ask that those that have siblings graduating please participate with us. We need everyone to perform so we sound great. Thank you for understanding!


Thank you to all those great band parents that served, cooked, prepped, donated products and cleaned up for our annual pork chop supper. We appreciate all the dedication and “behind the scenes” work from many of you. The students did an amazing job musically and I hope the seniors felt like it was made known that they were valued for all the hard work and dedication to this program.


The wind ensemble performed for two very tough and distinguished adjudicators on the Illinois State University Campus two weeks ago. They were critiqued and given some valuable feedback performing some very challenging music. We are very proud of their efforts and appreciate all their hard work.


Please seriously consider taking summer lessons so not only do you get better as an individual player, but the ensemble benefits from your growth. Potential ILMEA nominees should really take lessons over the summer! Yellow Sign up sheets are in the band room.


Thank you to all the students for their amazing commitment, dedication and passion for this music. Seniors, you have been a joy to teach over the past four years. For some, it has been much longer and it was an honor to see you all grow up into fine young adults. I wish you all the best and as I say it to all the alumni, you are always welcome here at IVC!
