IMEA District & State Results 2013-14

Members of the Granite City school bands made their mark in Illinois Music Educators Association District VI competition this year by having more students selected for the district festival than they have ever had in the history of the school district.

Outstanding students are selected to participate at the district level through auditions in October.  Students receiving high scores at these auditions were invited to perform at the IMEA All-District Concert Band Festival at Southern Illinois University – Carbondale on November 2nd and the IMEA All-District Jazz Band Festival at Belleville West High School on November 9th.   This is one of the highest honors a high school musician can receive and we are very proud of them!
