Music in Our Schools Month

The month of March is Music in our Schools Month and Youth Art Month at schools throughout the United States.  It is a time to recognize the importance of the arts in schools as well as an opportunity for celebration of the arts in schools.

At Galesburg High School, music students got an early start in the festivities by participating in the District No. 205 All-District Choir Festival on February 17, 2015 and the All-District Band Festival on February 24, 2015.  The Choir Festival included performances by the GHS Concert and A cappella Choirs as well as special performances by the Canta Bellas (the women of the GHS choirs) and the GHS Chamber Singers, doing their rendition of a Pentatonix tune.  The 21st Annual Band Festival included performances by the GHS Symphonic Band and Wind Symphony.  A highlight of the concert was the grand finale, God Bless America, performed simultaneously by all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band students as well as the two high school bands.

On Thursday, March 5, 2015, select GHS choir and band students will participate in the annual Solo and Ensemble contest at GHS.  Students will perform prepared pieces for judges who will give feedback for improvement as well as division ratings based on the quality of the performance.  Awards will be presented to all events receiving a Division I (Superior) rating.

A new event this year in honor of Music in our Schools Month and Youth Art Month will be held at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at the Lake Storey Pavilion.   The GHS Fine Art and Chamber Music Festival will showcase the work of many of the most talented visual artists and musicians at GHS.  Snacks will be available and attendees will have the opportunity to view art work as they listen to various small instrumental ensembles from GHS.

The month of March will end with two vocal music concerts in GHS Hegg Auditorium.  On Thursday, March 26, 2015, the GHS Choirs will present a Pops Concert at 7:00 PM and on Tuesday, March 31, 2015, GHS will host the annual All-District Elementary Choir Festival at 7:00 PM.   All of these events are free and open to the public.
