GCHS Students Take 2nd and 3rd Place in All-State Composition Contest
We would like to congratulate Marcus Barnes and Nick Haddock for being the first students in GCHS history to place in the Illinois Music Educator’s Association All-State Composition Contest. Over 200 original compositions were submitted by students throughout Illinois, and were judged by a panel of active composers and professional musicians. Marcus Barnes earned 2nd place in the Instrumental Ensemble Caption with his composition, “As the Sun Rises,” and Nick Haddock took 3rd Place in the Jazz Ensemble Caption with his composition, “Flying High”. It is an incredible honor to place in this level of competition.
