Congratulations to WCG and Jazz From Mr. Buti

Congratulations to the Winter Color Guard on their performances at the Palatine Invitational on Saturday, January 21. In their Short Flag debut, the squad came in 2nd place—narrowly missing 1st by .3 of a point. In Lyrical Tall Flag, the squad earned a 3rd place tie. Both routines are developing nicely and will be competing again on Sunday, January 29 at the Lake Zurich Regional Contest. Congratulations ladies and good luck.

Congratulations to all of the jazz groups on their performances at the North Shore Jazz Festival on Saturday, January 21. The new “Gold” Combo received a Division II rating. Both the Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Band II earned “Superior” Division I ratings. Furthermore, Jazz Band II took 3rd place honors in the Second Band class. Congratulations to all the jazz musicians. The next performances for the jazz groups will be at Jazz in the Meadows on Saturday, February 25.
