The Start of a New Music Legacy at District 45

Every year the D45 Music Boosters host two Music Socials that invite all District 45 Band, Orchestra, and Choir members for nights full of fun and music. This year the tradition continued, virtually! Hybrid and remote students came together for a Zoom celebration that included magic tricks, trivia raffles, and prizes.

Do you know how many beans Beethoven counted out for his perfect cup of coffee? Or, what about Sousa? Do you know how many operettas and marches Sousa composed? Two D45 students were able to come up with an answer to these trivia questions during the Music Social that occurred last month. As a result Caitlyn Burkeen and Norah Luedtke became the first recipients of a new tradition at D45, Legacy Music Stands.

Every year the D45 Music Boosters host two Music Socials that invite all District 45 Band, Orchestra, and Choir members for nights full of fun and music. This year the tradition continued, virtually! Hybrid and remote students came together for a Zoom celebration that included magic tricks, trivia raffles, and prizes.

What really set this night apart from the socials in the past, however, was this new found tradition at the District. Learning and practicing music virtually is not an easy thing to do and it’s something many of our students never had to do prior to this last year. As a way to commemorate the resiliency of our band, orchestra, and choir members, the D45 Music Boosters created the Music Legacy Stands.

These are two music stands that will be handed down to orchestra, band, and choir students every year. Both stands are filled with decals representing the schools on each side of our District community, and every recipient is able to add their name to it.

The music social hosted by the D45 Music Boosters is a representation of the true spirit behind our staff and students. We value their collaboration and engagement to make things such as the Music Legacy Stand Tradition a possibility. We are excited to see it continue throughout the years in District 45.


El comienzo de un nuevo legado musical en District 45

¿Sabes cuántos frijoles contó Beethoven para su taza de café perfecta? ¿O qué hay de Sousa? ¿Sabes cuántas operetas y marchas compuso Sousa? Dos estudiantes de D45 pudieron encontrar una respuesta a estas preguntas triviales durante el Music Social que ocurrió el mes pasado. Como resultado Caitlyn Burkeen y Norah Luedtke se convirtieron en los primeros receptores de una nueva tradición en D45, Legacy Music Stands (atril).

Cada año, los D45 Music Boosters organizan dos sociales musicales que invitan a todos los miembros de la Banda, Orquesta y Coro de District 45 para noches llenas de diversión y música. Este año la tradición continuó, ¡virtualmente! Estudiantes híbridos y remotos se reunieron para una celebración de Zoom que incluyó trucos de magia, rifas de trivialidades y premios.

Lo que realmente diferenciaba esta noche de lo social en el pasado, sin embargo, fue esta nueva tradición encontrada en el Distrito. Aprender y practicar música virtualmente no es algo fácil de hacer y es algo que muchos de nuestros estudiantes nunca tuvieron que hacer antes de este último año. Como una forma de conmemorar la resiliencia de nuestros miembros de la banda, orquesta y coro, los D45 Music Boosters crearon los Music Legacy Stands (atriles).

Estos son dos atriles musicales que serán entregados a los estudiantes de orquesta, banda y coro cada año. Ambos atriles están llenos de calcomanías que representan a las escuelas de cada lado de nuestra comunidad del Distrito, y cada recipiente puede agregar su nombre a ella.

La música social organizada por los D45 Music Boosters es una representación del verdadero espíritu detrás de nuestro personal y estudiantes. Valoramos su colaboración y compromiso para hacer de cosas como la Music Legacy Stand (atril) una posibilidad. Estamos emocionados de verlo continuar a lo largo de los años en District 45.
