Seven Mundelein High School Band Program students auditioned and were selected to the Illinois Music Education Association (ILMEA) District VII Bands and Jazz Bands this fall. This honor is usually accompanied by a district festival in November where the top music students from more than 50 high schools in the North and Northwest Suburbs of Chicago come together to make music. This year’s festival will be held virtually this Saturday, November 21, for all music students in the state of Illinois.
The students selected from Mundelein High School include: Natalie Altenhoff, junior, bassoon; Ella Kasamis, junior, jazz piano; Neil Martin, sophomore, jazz alto sax; Leila Moon, sophomore, clarinet; Erich Robb, senior, jazz trombone; Morgan Shumski, senior, jazz bass trombone; and Isabel Sioson, senior, jazz guitar.
Andy Sturgeon and Jerald Shelato direct the instrumental music program at MHS.
