Band & Choir Win Gold & Silver in Chicago
The CMS High School Symphonic Band and High School Advanced Choir traveled to Chicago to tour the city and participate in the Worldstrides OnStage Heritage Festival. The Advanced Choir earned a Silver Second place award and the Symphonic Band earned a Gold First place award and an invitation to the Festival of Gold. At each festival, the Ovation Award is given to a student whose contribution to their music program transcends the making of music. The award recognizes one student at the festival who represents that spirit of determination, inspiration and service to others that exists in all of us. CMS' own, Kristen J., won the Ovation Award at the 2018 Chicago festival. Congratulations to all these student musicians representing CMS in Chicago!
