The music faculty, private teachers and sender school music teachers associated with South High School are proud to recognize the students that earned 34 placements in band, choir, jazz band and orchestra.  On Tuesday, October 11,  57 student musicians from South High School in Downers Grove took a total of 71 auditions at Carl Sandburg High School to participate in the 2016  Illinois Music Education Association District 1 Festivals.  These students have been selected through a highly competitive audition to participate in the 2016 ILMEA District Festivals.

Student musicians enrolled in music ensembles in the DGS Fine Arts department continue to annually demonstrate remarkable success at both the District and All-State level. "The total number of participating students continues to be consistently high on an annual basis." said DGS Fine Arts Chairman Glenn Williams. "Additionally, DGS is equally well represented in all areas of ensemble performance – band, choir, orchestra, vocal jazz and jazz band - in this process."
