26 student musicians selected to participate in ILMEA Honors Festival

Performed Nov. 4 at Festival Finale Concert


More than two dozen band and choir students from Homer Junior High School were selected to participate in the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) Elementary and Junior High Division’s District I Music Festival in November.

The students auditioned for the opportunity in September and joined 250 student musicians from 70 schools in the southwestern metropolitan Chicago area at a joint performance on Nov. 4 in New Lenox.

“We are very proud to have these musicians represent Homer CCSD 33C,” said Homer Junior High School Choral Director Diane Pullara.


More than 1,200 students, including about 100 Homer Junior High School chorus and band students, auditioned for the opportunity.

Those selected to participate attended a full day of rehearsals on Nov. 4, followed by a public Festival Finale concert at Lincoln-Way Central High School in New Lenox.
