Thursday, August 22, 2019

A Lincoln-Way West Saxophone Quartet, composed of Kyleen Hall, Mikey Schelinski, Sammy Duckworth, and Nathan Fields, was selected to perform at the 29th annual Music for All National Chamber Music Festival in March 2020.

The quartet had to prepare a rigorous audition tape and submit it to Music for All for critique. A limited number of ensembles get selected. In the group’s acceptance letter, Music for All CEO Eric Martin stated “Your ensemble was deemed to have achieved the level of musical performance and artistry worthy of being featured and celebrated on a national stage.”

This is the first Lincoln-Way group to be accepted to the National Chamber Music Festival.

“What an amazing accomplishment for these students,” said Lincoln-Way West music department chair, Justin Barnish. “These students are being recognized on a national stage amongst some of the best high school musicians in the country. The time and dedication it takes to achieve at such a high level is no small feat and everyone at West is extremely proud of them.”
