Thank you to everyone who made this past weekend a huge success! At our 3rd annual Let The Music Begin day on May 19th, we had nearly 150 students take part in our afternoon music school and evening concert. We were also joined by the Chicago Youth Symphonic Band, the Metro Youth Band, and the Chicago Staff Band. The students received the opportunity to be guest soloists with the CSB and MYB on two numbers, seen below.
We were also pleased to present the first annual William D. Olive Music Scholarship Award to Clayton Cox from the Oak Brook Terrace Corps. The award will be given each year by Mr. Steve Olive to the student who not only shows excellence in their musical pursuits, but also strives to uphold the values of the Salvation Army and bring honor to his or her family.
