Sycamore High School Choir will participate in a joint clinic with the Western Illinois University Choir on Monday. 

This joint clinic will be an opportunity for Sycamore choir members to work together with choir members from Western Illinois University and their director, James Stegall. 

“We are very excited to have Western Illinois University come and share this experience with our students,” Drayton Eggleson, Sycamore director, said in a news release. “It is important for our choir to not only perform for an esteemed university, but to also experience and hear the opportunities that our students can have at the collegiate level. We are honored to have this exchange with Dr. Stegall and his groups.”

Highlights of the clinic include a joined performance by the Sycamore Chamber and Concert choirs singing the first three movements of Franz Schubert’s Mass in G Major, performances by James Stegall and the Western Illinois University Singers, and a short clinic given by Stegall for the SHS choral program.

The clinic will be in session from 8:15 to 10 a.m. Monday in the high school auditorium. The clinic is free and open to the public.
