College Music Awards

$1,000 Awards for Seniors

In the spring of 2018, the Downers Grove Music Club will present a $1,000 College Music Award to at least one student enrolled in Band, Choir or Orchestra in District 99. Award recipients will be selected based on the merit of their musical accomplishments, as described on the application form, and the quality of the musical performance provided on the video recording portion of the application. The goal of these awards is to recognize and reward those students who have worked very hard in their musical pursuits and have achieved a high level of accomplishment as a musician.

Here are the most recent and past recipients of the DGMC Music Awards.

Any District 99 high school band, choir or orchestra senior, who will be graduating during the 2017-2018 academic year and who will be attending college in the fall of 2018, is eligible to apply.
