Huntley Unit District 158 recently offered congratulations to the following Huntley High School music students, who have been invited to participate in the Illinois Music Education Association District IX Festival:

• Kimberlynn Bjurstom, junior -- Senior Chorus


• Kendall Elrod, junior -- Senior Chorus

• Olivia Gatto, junior -- Senior Band

• Caitlin Goodman, junior -- Senior Band

• Aiden Huber, junior -- Senior Jazz Band III

• Zach Leitzke, junior -- Senior Chorus

• Caden Rasmussen, junior -- Senior Orchestra

• Francesco Scarpelli, sophomore -- Senior Band

• Ayden Schofield, senior -- Senior Chorus

As part of the virtual festival, all students will have a combined motivational keynote address and then will break out by voice part and instrument to participate in two different 60-minute master classes on Zoom.

To keep the size of each masterclass manageable, the students will be split into two groups in their voice part or instrument. They will attend the first session with one clinician and then change to the other clinician for the second session.
