About this Article

The echo and acoustics of the White House grand foyer made a lasting impression on a group of Palatine High School musicians. Six members of the school's Brass Ensemble performed for two hours Saturday morning, serenading about 1,000 visitors. "There is a lot of echo in the room, so the brass sounded fantastic in that type of acoustical space," said Raeleen Horn, Palatine's director of bands.
