Welcome to the Spring of 2015

Jivka Jeleva

While preparing for an exciting Spring 2015 semester, we also look forward to our Christmas performance at the Hammond Square Mall on December 7, as well as the end of the semester recitals. The Northlake Community Band will be performing on December 9, and we are excited to hear this unique ensemble once again. Our students' achievements have always made us proud, and we give a special shout out to those who performed at the Farmers' Market concert on October 25, 2014.
