We are marching in the St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 5th!

Our instructor CJ has been chosen as one of this year's AllStars Music Directors!
Many of you know CJ as a drum instructor and MD here at Elmhurst, and we're excited to announce that he has been chosen as one of the MDs for this year's annual AllStars program.
The School of Rock AllStars Tour takes the very best students from around the world and sends them on a country-wide summer tour across the United States. Less than 1% of School of Rock students are selected each year to represent School of Rock as an AllStar. Once selected, students will have an authentic touring experience, including traveling on a tour bus, doing tour publicity, and starring in nightly performances at famous venues and festivals during a two-week tour.
To learn more about AllStars, click HERE, and look below for a video of last year's AllStars performing live in-studio!
We wish CJ the best with this amazing opportunity!
