Sycamore High School Music Department placed 3rd in the 2022 IHSA Music Sweepstakes competition in Class A. These awards were based on results from student solo and small ensemble performances at the IHSA Solo/Ensemble Festival in Harvard, Illinois, and also from Band, Orchestra, and Choir performances at the recent IHSA Organizational Festival (also in Harvard). The SHS Orchestra program placed 1st in Class A for their Solo/Ensemble results.
Our results this year are an absolute tribute to the dedication and excellence of our SHS Music students. Their motivation and determination is what allowed Sycamore to thrive in this competition, and they should take great pride in their achievement. Their accountability, their attention to detail, and their willingness to work together for common goals are all traits that will serve them well. Also, congratulations go to their teachers and private instructors, whose efforts in working with our students was key to their success. Their trophy is an award that our students, school, and community can take pride in.
This is the seventh time that Sycamore HS has placed in the Top 3 since 2009, and it is our fourth consecutive Top 3 finish (nice work, seniors!)
