Under the direction of Elizabeth Jackson, the Eden Prairie High School Wind Ensemble participated in the 7th annual Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival in the internationally-renowned Chicago Symphony Center! The festival featured three outstanding wind ensembles conducting standalone concert performances of Percy Grainger literature. Each ensemble experienced the highlight of working with the 2017 Festival Clinician, Frank Ticheli, before their performances. Read what director, Elizabeth Jackson, had to say about her experience:

“It was truly a magnificent experience for our kids. From our expert tour guide Bob, to Frank Ticheli’s magical & unforgettable clinic, to the breathtaking Chicago Symphony Hall concert stage, to experiencing the Chicago Symphony live and in person…it was fantastic.

Thanks so much for the memories.”
