January was a very eventful month culminating with a truly fantastic performance from Symphony at the ILMEA music educators conference and also Jane, Jeanne, and Lynette performing in the Honors Orchestra. Please see below for pictures from the day. We do not have our concert from the ILMEA concert, however if you would like to hear what the performance sounded like you can listen to our preview concert from January 20th. Thank you so much to HOPE for sponsoring the recording.
