Conrady Alumni Band Members Needed to Perform in July 3 Concert

The sky over Conrady Junior High School will be awash with the sounds of patriotic and contemporary music July 3 as the Conrady Band will perform a pre-Independence Day concert with the help of some of the School's alumni band members.

For you former Conrady Alumni Band members, clean off those trumpets and shine up those saxophones and get ready to perform in at least two pre-concert rehearsals at the school before the free show on July 3 at 7 p.m. in the school parking lot, 97th Street and Roberts Road. 

Music Director Sue Clemons is asking any former band members who would like to perform in the July 3 concert to contact her at sclemons@npd117.net. Please let her know what instrument you play and which two (of three) rehearsals you can attend. Rehearsal dates are from 7 to 9 p.m. on June 29, July 1 and July 2 at the school.

"We want to get the community involved, and what bigger way and what bigger day than on the Fourth of July," Clemons said. "We're trying to get a taco truck and ice cream truck out there. That would be great."

Mrs. Clemons (below) recently was honored by the Quinlan and Fabish Music Company with a Certificate of Recognition for winning the 2018 Chicagoland Outstanding Music Educator Award. She was honored for Excellence in the field of Music Education.
