Waukegan Public Schools’ annual Middle School Music Festival is next week! The popular event will be hosted Tuesday, April 2 and Wednesday, April 3 at the Genesee Theatre in downtown Waukegan. 


The Middle School Music festival annually features performances by band, choir, orchestra and mariachi students from all five Waukegan middle schools. Nearly 800 student musicians will perform on the Genesee stage. The performances are free and open to the public. 


Day 1: Tuesday, April 2  will feature separate performances by the District’s 6th, 7th and 8th grade band students, as well as sets by 6th, 7th and 8th grade orchestra students. The night begins at 6 p.m. 


Day 2: Wednesday, April 3 will feature performances by middle school festival choirs and mariachi groups. Day two begins at 6:30 p.m. 


The Festival marks the first time many of the students will perform as one. While each school has been rehearsing together in recent weeks, the groups will combine for their first rehearsal just hours before taking the stage.


The Middle School Music festival is sponsored by Bravo Waukegan and Uline.
