Robert Sullivan Masterclass

We were very fortunate to have Robert Sullivan, Professor of Trumpet at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, at the Music Institute of Chicago for a masterclass last week. Three students played solo repertoire and 4 ensembles performed short works. Twelve students from ages 8-17 benefited from this fantastic opportunity. We would like to thank the Chicago Philharmonic and the Music Institute for making this possible! See program here: 4.4.17 Master Class Program and click on thumbnails below for larger images. Thank you Professor Sullivan!

Angelina Escobar solos with New Horizons Band

Last summer, in July 2014, Angelina Escobar was selected to perform as soloist with the New Horizons Band under the direction of Paul Hefner at the Music Institute of Chicago. She performed Trumpeter’s Lullaby by Leroy Anderson, and her parents were kind enough to provide a video recording to share. Angelina is currently a freshman at ETHS performing in the Concert Band.  Congrats Angelina!
