The Sycamore School District Orchestra Program is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. A special Centennial Concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Sycamore High School Main Gymnasium. Admission is free.

This special concert will feature performances by the fourth grade, fifth grade and middle school orchestras. The concert will conclude with a performance of Tchaikovsky's “1812 Overture” and will combine fourth through 12th grade orchestra members, along with many Sycamore Orchestra alumni who have returned to be a part of this special performance. More than 250 string musicians are expected to perform together on one stage.
