Thanks to all of the performers and the supporters of this year’s Downers Grove Music Club and Downers Grove Public Library Concert Series. May 20th’s concert, Classical Jam, was a big success. Performances of Debussy, Rachmaninoff, and Bernstein to name a few, were a wonderful conclusion to this year’s series. Stay tuned for next year’s concert schedule beginning in September.
Be sure to see our final concert of the season: “Classical Jam” on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 2:00 pm at the Downers library. It features an enjoyable variety of classical music – solo piano, instrumentals and voice – performed by DGMC musicians before we break for summer. DGMC elections will follow the program.
Congratulations to these 5th and 6th grade students who received the Downers Grove Music Club Private Lesson Awards at the recent District 58 north side orchestra concert. This award is made possible by the generous donation from the Bulut family in memory of their mother, Shelby, a passionate music educator. The Music Club is excited to help these young string students challenge themselves further toward music excellence.
Congratulations to the three 5th and 6th graders who received the Downers Grove Music Club Private Lesson Awards at the recent District 58 south side orchestra concert. These students are receiving funding to enroll in 12 weeks of private lessons with a professional string musician. These students were selected based on their demonstration of hard work thus far and their enthusiasm to learn more.
