GEF Recital Night
GEF Recital Night Performance Times
The chart for Recital Night is sorted by performing musicians' last names.
On the bottom of this chart are two tabs. The one on the left is for GEF performers.
In addition to student performances in fifteen recital rooms, there will also be four different chamber ensembles from the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. This is your (and your student's) opportunity to hear live, professional music up close and for free. In fact, the Attea students will be given a short assignment which will include watching at least one of the ESO ensembles. They will have a chart where we will map out their schedule for the evening.
Each ensemble will perform three identical half hour recitals, giving attendees the opportunity to hear all four, or just come for one or two. The groups, times and locations are below:
C110 (Band Room): ESO Woodwind Quintet - 6:15, 6:55, 7:35
C103 (Music Room): ESO Percussion Trio - 6:15, 6:55, 7:35
C107 (Orchestra Room): ESO String Quartet - 6:55, 7:35, 8:15
B202 (LRC): ESO Brass Quintet - 6:15, 6:55, 7:35
The Glenview Education Foundation has been so generous for the past decade with this wonderful event for our musicians - and they have committed to making the 11th year even bigger and better! THANK YOU GEF!

IGSMA Performance Times
The chart for IGSMA is sorted by performing musicians' last names. Be careful - each ensemble is only listed once, so it may be listed under another player's name first. On the bottom of the chart are two tabs. The one on the right is for IGSMA performers.
Private Lessons - the next step
The better you can perform on your instrument, the more fun you have while playing. It's a wonderful thing!!
