IMEA All-State Success!!!

I would like to announce and congratulate the following GKHS students for making down to IMEA this year.

Senior Alyssa Edwards for making All-State Orchestra. This is her second time making All-State. Last year she made the band

Senior Katie Thurlby for making All-State Choir.  This is also her second time making All-State Choir

Senior Rebecca Whittenhall for making All-State Choir. First time making All-State Choir but she will be performing in the Illinois High School Theater Festival All-State Theater production of "Grapes of Wrath" which she auditioned for and made earlier in the year. Shows are performed early in January. Busy month!

Junior Alex Siknsa for being selected for the Future Music Educators Seminar (FMES). This is a program where students who are contemplating Music Education as a career will spend three days in during the festival learning about the different components of the profession and how to prepare for it.

Congratulations! Great representation by GK!

IMEA All-State festival takes place in Peoria from January 22-25 with concerts on Saturday the 25th.
