Elgin Symphony Field Trip!

Our 5th grade classrooms had the pleasure of attending a concert performed by the ESO at the Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin on Friday, April 17th. The music was exciting and fun, and the students had a great time! If you have not had the opportunity to hear this fine orchestra play, I would highly recommend you go! The concert was interactive, funny, and playful- perfect for a beautiful Friday morning.
Here are a few pictures from the trip. Enjoy!
