Leading Delavan-Darien High School Band and Orchestra students participated in the Southern Lakes Honors Festival held at Badger High School in Lake Geneva on Wednesday, March 5.
The purpose of the festival is to highlight the talents of hard-working music students, to meet like minded students from other schools, and to achieve a high level performance in a rehearsal setting similar to a professional ensemble.
It was a full, and exhausting day.
The students enjoyed a “get to know you” lunch as they arrived at Badger, during which they met their stand partner and section members from other Southern Lakes Conference schools.
They participated in intensive rehearsals with noted guest conductors and sectionals lead by the participating band and orchestra teachers. The ensembles performed a concert that evening for their families and each other.
