Oswego Schools Selected for Illinois Music Educators Conference

We're excited to announce that the Murphy Jr. High 8th Grade Symphonic Band, Oswego East Wind Symphony, and the Oswego East Jazz Ensemble have been selected to perform at the 2021 Illinois Music Educators Conference! This year, the conference has been changed in format due to COVID-19 so the band will be performing at the 2022 Conference. Hosted by the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA),  IMEC meets in Peoria and provides an honors music ensemble festival, professional development for music educators, and performances from the top ensembles in the state. 


This invitation comes from a rigorous recording submission from groups all around the state and is a high honor for every ensemble selected. This marks the first time that the OEHS and Murphy ensembles have been selected for performances at the conference. 


We would like to extend a well deserved congratulations to the 2019-2020 8th Grade Band, Wind Symphony, and Jazz Ensemble as these are the students who made the recordings and resulted in the selection of the groups.
